Artist Showcase: Eileen Kelly

Join us on April 25th from 1pm to 5pm for an artist showcase featuring Eileen Kelly.

Needle Felting work, unique creations that are one of a kind
"Each piece is done freehand, with no pattern. It starts with roving wool (wool before it’s spun into yarn). I use sharp barbed needles to manipulate the fiber, make them interlock and become a dense wool sculpture. The wall hangings are made using hot water and soap to create a super strong material for the background. Then I use more roving and the sharp needle to create the 3D effect. Every piece takes many hours and is an individual labor of love. If you purchase one of my works please know that it is a true original."
— Eileen Kelly
