- Lecture with Felt Artist Jean Hicks

Suggested donation: $5
Cash bar provided by the Museum
Join us for an evening with Jean Hicks, a Northwest native whose love of wool and felt drew her to Finland for a residency at the Jyvaskyla institute in central Finland, in May of 2010. Jean will talk about her experience and show images of her travels in the lecture. Funded in part by 4culture, Jean made felt using local wools, taught a felt hat-making class to students of the institute and travelled to eastern Finland, Helsinki and Tallinn Estonia meeting with local felt makers and farmers. Jean is a lifelong Northwesterner whose work has been seen at many art museums in the Pacific Northwest as well as in other part of the US and worldwide.
There will be a small fashion show as part of the evening.
