  • The Medium - About Felting

    If you have ever shrunk a sweater by accidently washing it in hot water you have felted something! Felting occurs when wool fiber is exposed to moisture and agitation. Each wool fiber has a hollow shaft which when filled with water, pushes the hairs on the side of the shaft out. With agitation, these side hairs tangle with the ones they come in contact with. The more they are moved against each other the more tangled they become and consequently they become tighter and denser and smaller. This is the basis for the art of felting

Testimonials

Judy Oleson

I’m adding my congratulations to everyone who sees your gorgeous fiber art sculpture. It is the perfect way to thank and recognize donors to the Third Street Center. While brass plaques in hospitals and other traditional means of recognizing capital campaign contributors can be so easily overlooked, yours is uniquely eye catching with all of its colors and textures and wonderful form. I was greeting people at the front desk as they came in on Saturday, and virtually everyone stopped not only to look at, but to spend time with your piece. Children are intrigued by it–it’s hard for them to resist touching it!

I can’t imagine how hard you worked to produce the sculpture in time for the Grand Opening. And, on behalf of all those associated with the Third Street Center, I can’t begin to thank you enough for producing such a wonderful tribute to the Center’s supporters that will continue to delight tenants and visitors as long as the building stands.
