Take a walk on the wild side with artist Suzanne Moulton.
Suzanne Moulton has dedicated her life to awareness for wildlife through her art, and educational craft workshops. She is passionate about protecting our local wildlife, using her artistic skills to build empathy and awareness about endangered species. We are excited that she is once again teaming up with Crag to offer a series of craft workshops that are both a fun and educational way to learn about just a few of the wild creatures and places Crag works to protect.
Her “Birds of the Elliott” campaign which partnered with The Audubon Society of Portland and the Coos Art Museum last year successfully activated hundreds of people to follow and protect old growth forest and endangered wildlife in the state of Oregon. She has over 10 years experience working on stop-motion feature films such as Coraline, Frankenweenie, ParaNorman and numerous commercials and independent short films. She is currently working on a new stop-animation film series–Nowheres Wolf– based on the life of the famous Oregon wolf designated OR-7 by researchers.
Bird Eggs: Learn to Wet Felt - Saturday, April 13
Learn about amazing local birds while crafting eggs in an age-old tradition of wet felting! Fun for all ages, enjoy some time with soft, warm bubbly soap and wool fiber. In this class, we will go step by step through the wet felting process to make cute little eggs. Our colors for this workshop are inspired by the egg colors of the rare Oregon Native Bird Species: Marbled Murrelet and Peregrine Falcon. These birds and their flashy egg colors are a wonderful reminder of the amazing nature right here in our own backyards. We will be working with dyed and washed wool fiber. Class taught by wildlife artist Suzanne Moulton.
