Online Classes


Creative Classes for Kids and Adults!

Needle Felting •  Mixed Media • Nature Crafts 

Enjoy engaging online classes from home! 

After a fun summer of online camps, Jill Newman is now offering online classes for kids and adults in a variety of arts and crafts, including needle felting and mixed media. A creative outlet is just what we all need during these difficult times!  Although we wish we could be together, we can still stay connected and engaged.  The instruction is virtual -- via video tutorials and/or Zoom classes -- but the wonderful materials are real and the hands-on crafting is a really fun experience. Click links below to see details and to register. 

You can sign up for the 12-week fall semester or for monthly four-week offerings in from mid September through early December. Mixed media classes will feature a new project every week.  Needle Felting classes will focus on two projects per monthly four-week session.  The schedule will allow for ample flexibility.  If you can't make a weekly Zoom session, you can either join the other session that week or get a video recording of the session.  Also, most instruction will be covered in the video tutorials, which you can watch anytime at your convenience; the Zoom sessions are intended to give a social component to supplement the videos. Also, please note that the "monthly" offerings do not exactly align with the calendar;  each four-week session will go approximately mid-month to mid-month.  Exact dates for the live Zoom sessions are provided in each class listing below, but again, there's no need to worry about attending every single class. You will get all the content no matter what!

Register for fall classes below.  Note that registration fees are for instruction only – via engaging Zoom sessions and videos tutorials. Materials must be purchased separately, based on projects you choose.

Please go to the Materials Kits Shop to purchase all the supplies you need.  You will have options for basic needle felting tools, wool sets (by monthly projects), crafting kits, as well as extra felting needles and pre-felted core wool eggs and balls. You can have your materials shipped directly to you or you may opt for local contactless pickup (available monthly in Rockville, MD).
