Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
I believe it is really valuable to have artists come into the classroom to visit the students. Linda Thiemann is a felting artist in the Dallas area that generously gave of her time to visit our class before we started our sculptural needle felting project. The students love seeing and hearing about the work and the process from the actual artist, and I love making that real world connection for them. Linda’s work is very interesting and beautifully made. I enjoy many of her pieces, but Reflections of Texas is particularly nice. Perhaps it’s because it calms me when I look at it, as I just come off getting ready for and completing the first week of school!
