Due to Winter Storm Warning this event has been rescheduled to Feb 15.

Join Marilyn Andersen, Fiber Artist from Story City and learn about her art while creating for yourself. Marilyn raises goats and llamas, She shears them and prepares their fleece, then dyes and spins the fleece and uses their wool to create beautiful fibers which she then uses in her knitted and woven work.

Marilyn will demonstrate the techniques and you will also get to try your hand at weaving on Marilyn's inkle looms. With an inkle loom you can create everything from straps for your purse or bag, guitar straps, and even bracelets and shoelaces. All ages are welcome. We are asking for a $5 Donation for each creation.


Join us Thursday, February 8 from 5-7 pm. at the Octagon Gallery Shop, 413 Douglas in Ames. 
Marilyn is our February Featured Artist. Her creations will be celebrated at 15% off!
