judy 2Welcome to the fourth annual exhibit of Felted Forms - Wool in the Woods.  Last year, we took you on a colorful journey through the woodland sculpture garden. This year, we again use color and form to enhance the grey winter scenery along the same route. We hope you will take a stroll along the path and discover these felted forms for yourself.

Felt making is a very ancient craft that dates back to the beginnings of civilization. Wool fibers are felted using moisture,
friction and heat. As the wool shrinks, the fibers interlock and mat together. Our goals are to take this simple, natural
process and produce art forms of all types as well as introduce this amazing material to a wider audience through
exhibition in galleries and alternative spaces.

Growing out of a study group from members of the Kansas City Weavers Guild, The Feltmakers Federation of Kansas City
has grown to include a range of people interested in developing art forms using this oldest of textiles.

No pre-registration necessary, included with admission. Event sponsored by the Friends of the Arboretum.
