We are excited to announce one of our first official makers! Jenni Glassford from the local community will be exhibiting her needle felting work at our Mini Maker Faire.
What is needle felting you ask? It’s a popular craft that makes wool into felt without the use of water. Needle felting artists utilize the same industrial barbed needles factories used to make sheets of felt. But instead of making sheets the artists use the needles to mold the wool into compacted felt shapes. These shapes are only limited by the creators imagination! Needle felting can be used to create anything from jewelry to sculptures. Glassford does her needle felting work in the form of teddy bears, unique animals and even in the likeness of pets.
We are excited to have Glassford join our line up of makers. Want to see more of Jenni Glassfords’s work? Check out her official flicker page. You can also see her work in person at the Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire on November 15.
