Face Mask Creations
Use your fiber art skills to create, decorate or design a face mask you have on hand or start from scratch!
This finished product does not need to be useful –
The only requirement is that some sort of **fiber art process must be used.
**Based on Wikipedia, “Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labor on the part of the artist as part of the works’ significance and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility”.
Send a photo of your finished project (including steps along the way if you wish) plus any other details you would like to share to
firstname.lastname@example.org for a slide show presentation at the January 23rd Meeting.
Deadline for Entries to be included in slideshow - January 18th.

I've done some machine felting of some glitter roving onto a piece of fabric to line the outside of the mask. The inside fabric was rescued from my daughter’s stash. To make it snug, I've crocheted a simple ear protector trying to coordinate the colors. Yes, I can breathe through it all and without inhaling any stray glitter fibers.
