MAKER MAKER: 3D Needle Felting with Rebecca Blankert

January 24, 2018

Join us for the first MAKER MAKER workshop of 2018 and learn the ins and outs of 3D needle felting with Sackville artist Rebecca Blankert. Rebecca is an artist who explores her interest in space and the supernatural through animation (with needle felted props), performance and zines. In her work you’ll find stories of aliens, spaceships and the fabled Sasquatch.

At this workshop, participants will transform pre-formed felted balls into miniature wooly objects using just wool roving and a felting needle. Needle felting is a technique that is quick to learn, satisfying and full of possibility.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable and playful, economical, sharable and even wearable.

MAKER MAKER is free and all materials are provided, no registration required.
