#1 in our sculpture series with Morgan Elser- Fiber Sculpting

  • The Peoria Art Guild 203 Harrison Peoria Il 61602 United States (map)

What is Fiber Sculpting? Fiber Sculpting is an exciting art form using Roving Wool (wool that has been washed and carded) along with a very sharp Barbed Needle.

To form a shape you will poke the barbed needle into the wool many many many many times until it is felted together. It is not a quick process but a very rewarding one!

As you use the barbed needle to will start to form shapes that can be joined together to make anything you can imagine from wool.

“I find my inspiration in this world around me as well as from my own life. The purpose behind my art is to evoke emotion from the viewer. To make one laugh, to sigh, to shed a tear, to gasp or laugh out loud, seeing something unexpected in my art. To open the viewer’s heart of mind. Perhaps seeing life a little differently, to improve their corner of the world as to understand life on a new level. Working in many mediums I strive to share the ability to help save a bit of the earth, to recycle, to re-use and to create art from the earth’s bounty. “-Morgan Elser
