Felted Cacti Gardens for Teens & Parents


Rock Paper Plant presents a very special felting class for teens and parents!

In this, two-hour class, each teen and adult will work together to create one cool needle-felted cactus garden. Needle felting is an easy and often relaxing way to create 3-D sculptures out of wool.

No experience and definitely no green thumbs needed! All materials will be provided.


  • Each ticket is for two people: a teen and an accompanying adult.

  • Each pair will make one cactus garden together.

  • Teens must be at least 12 years old to participate. Needle-felting involves real needles that are sharp so please take that into consideration when thinking about whether this activity is right for your child. We will have finger protectors available and will teach participants how to avoid accidentally poking themselves.

Tickets: $75 for two
