The Geekery Market Spotlight: The Wooly Forest

Welcome to The Geekery Market (formerly the Muggles Market). We are excited for our next event – just in time for all your geeky holiday shopping needs! As usual, we’ll be introducing you all to our artisans/authors/artists, sponsors, and activities for the Market every week as we get closer to the big day.

Please allow me to introduce to you one of our artisans, The Wooly Forest. The Wooly Forest sells beautiful hand felted art!

Answers to our 5 Geeky Questions

Tell us about the geeky goodness you’ll be bringing to the next Geekery Market! All of my creatures are hand-made from wool, using the needle felting technique.

How did you get started doing what you do? I remember seeing a small, felted deer somewhere and thought to myself, I wonder if I can do that? I started small, but I was hooked from the very beginning.

What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about? I’m really excited about these new beetles I’m working on. My goal is to make an array of really cool, unique insects that are larger than life.

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares? All of my creatures are hand-made by myself. Each piece is made completely out of wool. They take a long time to make because l use a single barbed needle to form the wool.

What’s your favorite holiday story? The Princess Bride, (the book, and the movie). I love to watch the movie around Valentine’s Day.
