Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

300 people will gain a belief understanding of the fiber arts. 12 people wit gain an in depth knowledge at felt mating and will increase their skill making art from fiber.The lecture, workshop and fiber art hands-on demonstration will be available in an area that has limited access to an artist of Janice Arnold's caliber. The tour also draws other interested individuals from the rural/agriculture communities who are then exposed to the fiber arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal to expose 12 people to the fiber arts was exceeded by having 15 people participate in receiving an in-depth knowledge of felt-making and increase their skill through a day-long workshop. About 500 people attended the event and gained a better understanding of the fiber arts.
