Artful Felt at Sequoya Library: Exhibit, Classes, and Demonstrations

Artful Felt at the Library, an Exhibit by the Madison Area Felters’ Guild
April 5 to May 30, 2022

View 50 original handmade items representing varied feltmaking techniques and uses of wool: two-dimensional landscapes and portraiture, textural wall hangings, three-dimensional vessels and sculptural objects. All are made from a variety of sheep’s wool using felting techniques that go back thousands of years to turn wool fleece into sturdy felt.

Attend demonstrations of various feltmaking methods by the exhibiting artists, participate in beginning felting classes and visit the Sequoya Squares interactive display to make your own art. Come away with an appreciation for how felted wool can be used to make art.
