My Little Darlings Alpacas is returning to Creative Discovery Museum Oct. 8-12 for a week-long felting workshop. Guest artists Susan Darling and Tami Jo Alsobrook will be at the museum from 12-2 p.m. each day.
Children will learn the art of felting through hands-on activities, samples of alpaca wool and carding materials, and information on the felting process. Museum guests will also have the option of contributing to a large felt art installation, inspired by aquatics, which will be complete at the end of the demonstration. Young guests will have the opportunity to make a small felting project to take home.
"Felting is a handicraft art form very popular and easy to manipulate for young children,” said Liza Blair, arts mnager for Creative Discovery Museum. “Exposure to diverse and unique needle craft and textile arts helps children gain a broader understanding about the processes and skill needed to make art.”
My Little Darlings Alpacas, located in Chickamauga, raises alpacas for showing and harvesting wool.
