Organizer Cathy Disbrow

Organizer of Needle Felt Fall Gourd Tips & Techniques Workshop

Cathy sculpts her unique creations by connecting wool fibers: whether it’s stabbing wool with a barbed needle OR using hot water and agitation. She's been an artist her entire life working in craft, digital art, and hand drawn illustrations. She likes working with wool because it’s organic, making each creation unique. With a love for animals and the outdoors, felting was an obvious choice for her as an artistic medium, because she can sculpt nature art using natural materials. She enjoys spreading the love of felting through workshops and DIY craft kits. Cathy's been needle felting since 2014 and teaching to eager students since 2016.
