Crafterhours at the Library is a new monthly craft class series, We will be showcasing a different FREE* class on the second Thursday of the month at 6pm in our spacious community room!
We are very excited to announce our November Crafterhours Class:
Needle Felted Gnomies!
Needle felting is a process which uses barbed needles to interlock wool fibers to form a more condensed material. Wool fibers have scales which when rubbed against each other catch and lock into place to create this denser material called felt. Felting needles are used to entangle the fibers.
In November’s class, you’ll use this age old technique to create some adorable little friends, just in time for the Holidays!
About Anna Walker:
As a self-taught artisan, I enjoy working in a variety of media. Felting wool and other fibers is my primary media of choice, and my designs range from jewelry and accessories, to wearables to felted tapestries. While I do often sketch ideas, when it comes to the creating process, I try to let the fibers, fabrics, beads, wire and other materials speak for themselves.
My inspirations come from the wide variety of beauty found all around me: from the amazing sunsets of the Midwest, to Impressionist paintings, from the colors of the flowers in a garden to the angles and shapes in architecture, I’m always playing catch up with the ideas that come every day. I have begun to use photographs of landscapes and seascapes to create my felted tapestries, and am looking forward to interpreting stained glass patterns in felt as well.
