About this event
Molly Anderson: On-Edge Felt Revival Wednesday: January 22 • 2:00 p.m. Four years ago fiber artist Molly Anderson, primarily known for her hand quilted textiles, was ready for an invigorating challenge in a new direction. The iconic on-edge felt mosaics in MONA’s permanent collection by Jean Louise Berg Thiessen (1876-1960) were a source of admiration and fascination for Anderson, ultimately becoming the inspirational catalyst to her need for change. Anderson will discuss the on-edge felt mosaic technique, and how she has adapted it to her style of making and creating wool mosaics. She will also include a demonstration of her technique, show samples of wool, and works in progress. Molly Anderson has a degree in Art Education from Bethany College, Lindsborg Kansas. She was introduced to quiltmaking in 1988 by her mother and grandmother. Anderson’s work is exhibited and collected nationally. MONA has two "quilts" in the permanent collection. Presented in conjunction with Threaded, October 1, 2019 – February 9, 2020.
