Felt, a Panel
October 3-October 31
A panel discussion between felter Xander Griffith, Pat Sparks, and international felter, Ariane Mariane.
Portland Textile Month is invested in highlighting as many aspects of textiles and fiber arts as possible. This year we have noticed a large number of submissions relating to the technique of felting and the material felt. In response to this, we are coordinating a panel discussion between three felters: Xander Griffith, Pat Spark a representative from the PNW Felters Guild, and international felter, Ariane Mariane. They will discuss felting, fibers, and its role with the festival’s theme of reuse and repair. This event will be moderated by local interdisciplinary artist and felter Eli West along with textile artist and crafts based organizer Hannah Crawford.
A link to register for this panel will be made available by October 1st.
