Felted Pillow Pads or Small Rug with Seattle Artist Flora Carlile-Kovacs

November 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PST

In Kyrgyzstan, when a daughter got married, her mother felted her a rug. Using their ancient symbols she felted her best wishes and good luck into the rug that stayed with her daughter for the rest of her life. As people of nomadic tribes in Kyrgyzstan felted their dreams and wishes in rugs, hoping they’ll come true, we’ll use my pre-felt inlay technique to make our own pillow pads/rugs holding our dreams. Monday 10-4 and Tuesday 10-4 Come and join…
