Producer Member and UCFS Co-Founder Jennifer Osborn was accepted into two prestigious juried art shows recently with her felted work using UCFS wools. She is also being represented by the Main Market Collective, a new local arts initiative in Georgetown Ontario. Main Market Collective will be featuring Jennifer’s felted work, all of which is made from UCFS fibres, as well as upcycled and organic materials. Jennifer’s work focuses on using wools that are more suited to home decor and accessories. This enables her to use all the types of wool hers, and other’s flocks produce.
Jennifer’s piece “No going back #2 – Accepting the outcome” made from Shetland/Blue Faced Leicester wool from her own flock was accepted into Migration Canadian Contemporary Felt Exhibition at the Shatford Centre/Okanagan School of the Arts, for Canadian Felting Week. Located at 760 Main Street, Penticton, BC, from September 21 – October 16, 2016
