Hippy Felt Doll

Felted Doll by Karen Hungerford

Karen Hungerford ( weaver) and Nassu Born (artist) are other workshop regulars who have joined Thea to share their own expertise, creativity and joy to be creating works of art adding an even broader range of experiences. Projects we have shared in the past are:

Thea has lived in Sonoma County since she was 5 years old. She learned re-use at mom’s knee – literally! One day when she was going through her mother’s crochet books, a newspaper clipping from 1945 slipped out. It was an article describing how to cut a lady’s suit (jacket and skirt) from a man’s suit. Wool is a fiber that has many lives. It amazed Thea’s 11 year-old brain, and still does. Most of Thea’s rugs come out of her many sewing projects, redesign garments mostly. The tapestry style of crochet Thea will be teaching in the workshop at Recycletown was developed from a need to use strips of various length, while developing interesting patterns. Thea has been developing these crochet patterns since the 1980s.
