I had such a great experience the first time, I jumped at the chance to do it again. I'll be at the Art in the Garden event, part of the Second Sunday series at the Governor's Residence, this coming Sunday, September 11, from 1 - 6 pm. The Residence is at 2035 N. Front St., Harrisburg, PA. Weather permitting, I'll be outside near the Rose Garden.
I learned a lot from my from my extemporaneous creative involvement last year, and this time I will be well prepared. I pre-made a couple of background panels, with wool, machine needlefelted on wool/rayon felt. That way I can get right to laying out whateve scene I chose to work on.
Part of the joy of an event like this is talking and interacting with visitors. Fiber art is still a novel artistic media to many people, so education and outreach are always part of my goals. In the "never throw anything out" department, I remembered I had some step-outs I had made for my felting demo on Quilting Arts TV.
It's like magic!
