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.
