Wet Felting Demo with Kendall White

  • Grovewood Gallery 111 Grovewood Road Asheville, NC, 28804 United States (map)

In celebration of American Craft Week, Asheville fiber artist Kendall White will be at Grovewood Gallery on Saturday, October 13 from 11am-4pm demonstrating the wet felting process she uses to create sculptural wool baskets and merino wool neck wraps.

Kendall began her exploration in fiber art at a very early age, often helping her grandmother, a quilter, in cutting and piecing together fabric. In 2005, she moved to Smithville, TN to pursue her BFA in fiber arts at the Appalachian Center for Craft, studying weaving, spinning, dyeing and printmaking. But it wasn’t until 2008, at a workshop at the John C. Campbell Folk School, that she opened her eyes to one of the oldest forms of textile creation: felting. Kendall has since been dedicated to honing her craft while exploring new methods for creation. Her work can be found at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Store and Gallery of the Mountains (our sister shop) in Asheville.
