Wet Felting Demo with Kendall White
October 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Asheville fiber artist Kendall White will be at Grovewood Gallery on Saturday, Oct. 13, demonstrating the wet felting process she uses to create sculptural wool baskets and merino wool neck wraps. White began her exploration in fiber art at a very early age, often helping her grandmother, a quilter, in cutting and piecing together fabric. In 2005, she moved to Smithville, Tenn., to pursue her BFA in fiber arts at the Appalachian Center for Craft, studying weaving, spinning, dyeing and printmaking. But it wasn’t until 2008, at a workshop at the John C. Campbell Folk School, that she opened her eyes to one of the oldest forms of textile creation: felting. She has since been dedicated to honing her craft while exploring new methods for creation. Her work can be found at the Georgia O’Keefe Museum Store and at Gallery of the Mountains in Asheville.
