My friend and I did a felting workshop with Carmen Laferrière. It was a fabulous experience for both of us. Carmen was incredibly well prepared, gracious, patient and truly knowledgeable and exciting artist. She is very gifted in teaching others. I intend to do more learning through taking further workshops with Carmen.
Ms. Laferrière has developed creative and inclusive felting workshops to teach elementary to high school students. Her refined pedagogy, her ability to include everyone allows everyone to enjoy the process of felt making and be creative.

Au cours de l’atelier de feutrage offert par Carmen Laferrière à Victoria, j’ai à chaque étape expérimenté une paix profonde et une harmonie parfaite. À la fin de l’atelier j’avais dans mes mains une oeuvre d’art aux couleurs de l’arc-en-ciel. Une belle transformation de la fibre et surtout un beau mélange de mots et de couleurs.

I had the pleasure to have Carmen teach the art of felting in my Kindergarten class. She is passionate about what she does. She is very knowledgeable about her art and in her ability to engage all students. Her interaction with the children is gentle and inclusive.
