Let us woo you to the fabulous world of fiber art at The Fiber Lounge this weekend at the Austin Mini Maker Faire! Are you interested in making things with yarn, fabric, wool or paper? We welcome you to come and get your craft on in our cozy lounge. Bring your current project and sit with us for a while or dabble in a new technique with our talented instructors. Seven local fiber artists will be running small group sessions to introduce you to a new hobby, including:
Saturday morning: Making pendants out of a paper-based clay with Dawn, Making your own yarn on a drop spindle with Heather
Saturday afternoon: Playing with yarn (including crochet, knitting and weaving) with Vivian, Dyeing a custom silk scarf with Juliann
Sunday morning: Needlefelting small sculptures with Marie, Making your own yarn on a drop spindle with Heather
