Join us at The BoatHouse Club to explore abstract fiber art by combining natural mixed media materials (including dyed wool, raw silk, bamboo, embroidery thread, lace, and dried botanicals) to form a “stained glass” pendant. Perfect for spring, you’ll learn how to "paint" using needle felting and compose your own piece of small scale, wearable fiber art.
Please note: A Happy Half Hour will take place from 5:30pm-6:00pm, and the class will begin at 6:00pm. Students will be welcome to a complimentary happy hour or non-alcoholic drink of choice. Access to The BoatHouse Club at Seager Marine is only available by stairs at this time.
This class is appropriate for ages 16+.
This class will take place at The BoatHouse Club at Seager Marine, located at 811 S. Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424.

Her studio work integrates the traditional foundations of hand-constructed processes with modern technique, using foreign objects and metal as she explores provocative concepts related to female life and experiences. Tami is passionate about inspiring and empowering a new generation of creators by teaching the fiber arts in new, modern contexts which are still strongly rooted in traditional technique. She teaches retreats and workshops throughout the North East and the Pacific Northwest, where her family has a large sheep farm that specializes in breeding rare breeds of sheep. She has shown in several group shows, and her work has received awards from NY Sheep and Wool.
