Felted Easter Eggs with Sandi Cirillo
Tuesday April 4, 4-6pm
Carver Library, 12 Union Street, Searsport
Easter is just around the corner and we'll be making felted Easter eggs to decorate with.
Learn about the history of feltmaking, a fiber process that dates back to pre-Christian times, and have fun getting wet and soapy making felted eggs.
Sandi Cirillo has been a fiber/mixed media artist for over 25 years specializing in creating artwork which pleases the eye and craves to be touched. The inspiration for her work focuses on the textural qualities of manmade and natural fibers which she incorporates into her artwork. Her work reflects her love of traveling throughout Maine where she lives and her appreciation of the natural environment around her. Sandi lives in Searsport, Maine where she has her studio and where she teaches many different workshops. Visit her website www.especially-for-ewe.com to see examples of Sandi's work.
Parents/grandparents/guardians and kids: Come prepared to have some felted fun!
