BMAC offers needle-felted gnome workshop

BRATTLEBORO — In partnership with Green Mountain Spinnery, the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) presents a felted gnome workshop with Kathleen Meeks on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 2 p.m.

Meeks will lead adults and children ages 10 and up in making needle-felted gnomes. All materials will be provided, including needles and enough hand-dyed wool to make two gnomes.

Meeks has been needle felting since 2004. She and her daughter raise Shetland sheep on the farm where Meeks' mother was born, and her grandchildren are the seventh generation to live in the farmhouse. Meeks sells breeding stock, raw wool, roving, yarn, socks, handknit items, and needle felting supplies, and she holds fiber classes and summer fiber camps for children at the farm.

This workshop is presented in connection with “Felt Experience,” an exhibition of work by felt artists Marjolein Dallinga, Ruth Jeyaveeran, Melissa Joseph, Liam Lee, and Stephanie Metz on view at BMAC through Oct. 10.

Admission is $45, including materials; $40 for BMAC members. Space is limited. Register at or 802-257-0124 x101.
