Felting, Science and Art (Oh My) this Weekend on LBI

lbi happengsHey there LBI lovers! If you’re looking to come in out of the cold and take part in some cool events and activities (see what we did there) this weekend on Long Beach Island, here are a few we think may pique your interest!

On Saturday at the LBI Foundation of Arts and Sciences in Loveladies from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can check out our member Sara Setzer’s Nuno Felting Class. In Sara’s class you will learn about the art of Nuno Felting to make a one of a kind scarf. This technique is relatively new, and was developed by an Australian fiber artist named Polly Stirling in 1992. Nuno is actually the Japanese word for cloth, and the technique binds fine merino wool fibers, into sheer fabrics (like hand dyed silk chiffon in this case) to create an extremely comfortable and light weight felted piece of wear able art. Sara will guide you through the entire process from layout, felting, fulling and finishing. Get ready to try something new and use a lot of elbow grease! Please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to stand for most of the class.

For more details on the class, you can check out the full calendar listing by clicking here.

At 11:30 a.m. – also at the LBI Foundation, you can also take part in this week’s Science Saturday event. The topic is, “Cooking Fresh Seafood with Karter Larsen” – the presentation is put on by member Viking Village.

Then, on Saturday night in Surf City, you can check out the, “Bringing it back! Open house, Coffeehouse — East meets Gallery 1603!” at 1600 Long Beach Boulevard. The original Gallery 1603 open mic Coffeehouse, hosted by East! Music by Like Minded, Patrick Sullivan & 3 Chords and a Plug. Come, gather, join us – – – Sing, dance & be merry! Music kicks off at 7 and it IS truly an open house, coffeehouse. See you there!

Who says there’s nothing to do here on LBI in the winter?

We wholeheartedly disagree. If you’re on the Island this weekend, we’ll see you out there!
