MAKER MAKER: Needle Felting with Alana Morouney

January 17

Join us for our first MAKER MAKER of 2024 and discover the magic of needle felting with artist Alana Morouney. At this workshop, participants will transform tufts of soft wool roving into a miniature object of their own design. Alana will share tips, tricks, and ideas to get you started with this perfect cozy winter craft.

Alana Morouney (they/she) is a Sackville/Mi’kma’ki-based textile artist and sculptor. Alana takes an experimental approach to needle felting, often combining the soft medium with paper, metal, and leather. Their interactive sculptures, including kaleidoscopes and kites are both tender and playful. Through various media, Alana’s work explores themes of community, communication, parenthood, and dreams. Alana was the New Brunswick recipient of the BMO 1st award in 2021. In 2023, they initiated the creative speaker series Six Minute Eggs, presented at Struts Gallery.

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.
