Makerspace Projects and Group Visits

Fiber and Textile Based Projects

Blue crochet, amigurumi, bear projectSeveral tie dyed shirts with vinyl heat press logo

This blue bear is an example of Amigurumi, a crochet technique that uses yarn and stitching patterns to create a character based on different shapes. The right T-shirts are examples using the vinyl cutter to cut the MB logo and then attach the vinyl logo to shirts using the heat presses. The tie-dye was done outside the Makerspace.

Small needle felted snail with glass eyesNeedle felted, mixed media bee ornament

The snail and bee are examples of needle felting. Needle felting uses wool roving and a needle with burrs in it. The needle is repeatedly used to pierce and condense the wool together until it is shaped into an object or character. There are many colors of wool available in the Makerspace. Safety training required. Needles available for check out at the check in desk. *Note - needles are very sharp - be careful and do not share tools, if you are injured please report to a staff member immediately, needles need to be disposed of in the Sharps container at the check in desk.
