January Program - Tylar Merrilltylar merrill

Tylar Merrill is the owner of Thimbleberry Felt Designs Studio & Gallery and has been creating felt art and teaching fashion design for over 30 years. She was first introduced to felting in 1984 and has fallen in love with the versatility of this ancient textile. Learning the process of felting was a very natural and perhaps inevitable transition for her art.

Tylar uses her background in painting, quilting, dyeing, and design to create each unique art object. Mixed colored fibers with abstract hand strokes bring together these loves in exciting and satisfying ways. Tylar has always loved color and fiber. Felting has given her the opportunity to combine and explore color, texturing, 3-dimensional form, folk art, and fashion design. Her one of a kind fashions include a wide range in styles of garments and accessories based on the Nuno felting technique. She uses her advanced skills and experience in tailoring and fitting, giving her one-of-a-kind garments high quality artistry with a professional finish.

Tylar will be conducting three workshops during the week of our Guild meetings: “One Sleeved Silk Stole”, “Patchwork Tote Bag”, and “3-D Pattern Flared Skirt”. These workshops are filling quickly; register now!
