Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival @ Thomson | Georgia | United States

2017 Lineup: The Wood Brothers, Mingo Fishtrap, Sugar Ray and the Bluetones, the Joey Landreth Trio, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and the Marcus King Band.

The Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival debuted in 1993, to honor the music and spirit of Blind Willie McTell. The festival has been going strong ever since, and is still staged in the same grassy field it debuted in almost 23 years ago.

Workshop – Kids Felting @ STATE studio
May 6 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

In this 2 hour primer, students will learn the basics of felting. Felting is the process of taking raw animal fiber (wool, alpaca, etc) and combining it with hot water and friction to create a textile. We’ll focus on both the wet felting technique as well as touch on needle felting for the older students. STATE Designer Adrienne Antonson uses her experience of living and working on an alpaca farm in the NW to explain the basics of fiber structure, processing, and felting. By the end of the class, students will have created a seamless felt piece, as well learned how to make felted beads and balls.

All materials included.
