Mini Workshops - 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm, Paper Felt
There is an EASIER way to create a felted art piece. In this mini workshop you will use a specially formulated paper called ArtFelt to create a small art piece. (See example.)
This little workshop will show you the basics, then you can create larger pieces on your own. Come to learn the techniques, then take them back and create your own masterpieces!
There is a supply fee of $5. Bring your own scissors. All other supplies will be provided.
Program - 6:45pm - 9pm
Fiber Arts and Pineapple Plants in Bangladesh!
This past December, Mary Berry and her apprentice, Juli, spent two weeks in Bangladesh investigating the fiber arts of the area.
They discovered amazing things created by people using only the simplest tools! They brought back lots of samples, lots of pictures, and even some videos that will amaze and inspire you.
Please join us at DAFA for a whirlwind tour of fiber arts in Bangladesh!
