Video Access Only: Wrapped Fiber Rainbow
This listing is for video-only access to Mandi’s workshop. Please note that materials are not included but materials kits and the FULL workshop (video + curated materials) can be found in our Marketplace.
In this workshop, artist Mandi Smethells introduces us to her sculptural fiber art by sharing how to build a wrapped rainbow in her iconic style. Working with specialized tools (such as a u-shaped upholstery needle) and materials she’s curated over time, Mandi offers a glimpse into her passion and work to create colorful, playful, beautiful wall art. From an extraordinarily soft cotton rope to a wool blend yarn – in a rich, organic color palette – Mandi’s workshop kit has been thoughtfully built as an introduction to a sculptural fiber art making journey. Utilizing a wrapping technique that helps to build upon the 3D elements of her work, Mandi has developed unique techniques that come from years of weaving experience. We feel honored to be let in on her secret – and to share such a beautiful craft with you. The yarns offered in this kit introduce a brand new The Crafter’s Box wool blend yarn collaboration that we’re incredibly proud of. Using colors inspired by nature and materials such as wool, alpaca and acrylic (which provides strength) – this yarn is specially made in an Italian mill from colors curated by our artist this month. Our hope is that our wool blend yarn will inspire future fiber making of all kinds.
