Monster Felt Heads to San Francisco's Museum of Craft and Design

As of February, Tieton Arts & Humanities’ Monster Felt, the largest known piece of felt in the northern hemisphere, is currently being exhibited in San Francisco’s Museum of Craft and Design as part of Felt Decoded | Wool: Nature’s Technology.

The 15’ by 32’ piece, lovingly called Monster Felt by its size, is on display alongside the work of Janice Arnold. Janice, a fiber artist from the Northwest, was commissioned to lead the community felting project in Tieton that became Monster Felt. Symbolizing nomadic traditions and community involvement, Monster Felt also serves as the backdrop in the Museum’s exhibition for video footage of felt making in Kyrgyzstan.

You can begin planning your trip to San Francisco by reading more about the exhibition here. You can also learn about the Monster Felt here and of Janice’s intricate work on her website.

Yakima Herald: Start Your Engines for the Tieton Grand Prix

"Crafty folks love to make their own things, whether it’s wine, beer, food, art, music or something completely different — like motor vehicles.

Way back when cars debuted, many were made by hand. Assembly lines soon took over, but some people still like to make their own. Examples of cars made by human hands, with plenty of fun personal touches mixed in, will take center stage this weekend in Tieton."
