Felting Artist Juneko Martinson will be at the Friends Shop in the Visitor Center on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 10:am to 3:00pm to introduce us to her beautiful felted animals, representative of the natural environment of the Pacific Northwest as well as the life and legends of the area. Ms. Martinson will be present to demonstrate her fiber art, explain how she makes her delightful hand-crafted friends and answer questions about her work.
Ms. Martinson raises sheep and alpaca in Brush Prairie, Washington. Her recent work includes a series of exhibits, using felted animals she created to narrate a story entitled "Sheep's Wool from Shearing to Fashion Decor" which relates the journey of processing wool from raising and shearing sheep, carding and spinning yarn, to weaving blankets and textiles.
Some of Ms. Martinson's work is currently available for sale in the Friends Shop, including, among many others, dogs, cats, and some very enchanting opossums!
