CAMBRIDGE SCIENCE FEST
October 1, 2023
Alex Makes Art brought a unique set of materials and craftsmanship to Cambridge Science Fest. Crafters found a variety of merino wool based flowers that were die-cut to emulate a handful of native Massachusetts flora. After participants crafted up their bud at the BioMed booth, they watched Alex add it to the dangling structure that lined the back of the booth. Crafted added raw wool to their bud and other “zhuzh” to make their personal portion of this installation as unique as they are.
Participants learned about the 7,000 year old method of wet felting, took a turn at needle felting with raw pieces of wool, and enjoyed assembling die-cut flowers to create a whimsical piece with Alexandra Adamo of Alex Makes Art and team!
