MAKER MAKER: Felt Friends with Melissa Morris

Join us for our final MAKER MAKER of the term and learn to stitch the sweetest felt friends with Sackville artist Melissa Morris.

Explore the seemingly endless possibilities of soft sculpture and create a small felt object of your own design. From bananas and berries to pizza and donuts, Melissa Morris can transform just about anything into felt. Melissa will share tips, tricks, and simple stitches to get you started.

Melissa Morris is an artist, freelance designer, and co-founder of custom design agency Bay Town Creative. Her handmade practice focuses on embroidery and whimsical felt sculpture that often draws on popular culture. She is a regular participant at independent craft markets in Sackville. This past summer, Melissa and collaborator, Susie Vokey, were the Sackville Waterfowl Park Artists-in-Residence where they initiated The Wonderfowl Club.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable, and playful, economical, sharable, and even wearable. 

MAKER MAKER is free; no registration required.
