08-16: Community Thursday!


A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living. – Rudolph Steiner

Alice Scardetta works with textiles and art inspired by textiles – the texture and movement in her work is arresting and lovely.

Fiber Art Now Magazine has a fantastic Pinterest board dedicated to fiber artists – you can submit your photo, too! So much inspiration here…

Elephant - Jodi Colella

Elephant – Jodi Colella

Jodi Colella creates works that use organic shapes and components, articulated in wool, metals, wood, and other objects. She is remarkable at invoking shapes and movement that is particularly human, often larger than life, yet still touchable and understandable. Lovely work!

My friend Suzy aka Wool Wench has some *amazing* offerings up for grabs on her website! If you want to learn more about how to choose and use a fleece, work with your handspun art yarn, card fiber like Suzy, hand paint wool roving, and more, you really need to check out her free e-books and videos. The videos are available directly at the link, and the e-books are obtainable by signing up for her [also very] informative newsletter. Totally worth it, folks. She’s GIVING you valuable information, which is just the sort of move that makes me so supportive and adoring of our community. LOVE her!
