Felted Forms: Masking the Forest
February 16, 2019
8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Welcome to the fourth annual exhibit of Felted Forms – Wool in the Woods. Last year we took you on a colorful journey through the woodland sculpture garden. This year, we again use color and form to enhance the grey winter scenery along the same route. We hope you will take a stroll along the path and discover these felted forms for yourself.
Felt making is an ancient craft that dates back to the beginning of civilization. Wool fibers are felted using moisture, friction and heat. As the wool shrinks, the fibers interlock and mat together. Our goals are to take this simple, natural process and produce art forms of all types as well as introduce this amazing material to a wider audience through an exhibition in galleries and alternative spaces.
Growing out of a study group from members of the Kansas City Weavers Guild, The Feltmakers Federation of Kansas City has grown to include a range of people interested in developing art forms using this oldest of textiles.
No pre-registration necessary, included with admission.
