Welcome back to the Royal Bison, Secret Wool Society! We are delighted to have Calgarian Megan Borg and her mid-mod inspired wall hangings back at the fair. Here's what she has to say about herself and her work:
Secret Wool Society is self-taught fibre artist Megan Borg. Northern Alberta-born and Calgary-based, Megan loves using natural fibres and experimentation to create weird and wonderful one-of-a-kind woven wall hangings inspired by textures found in nature, with a bit of a mid-century modern influence. In addition to weaving, Megan also offers felted all-natural wool soaps, artisan-crafted Hokett weaving looms and tools, macramé plant hangers with hand-thrown pottery vessels, and the most adorable little handmade kitty dolls (they have little frocks and hand knit sweaters!). In her spare time, Megan loves to knit, hang out with her husband and 3 cats, and spend time throwing pottery at the local art centre.
Terrific! You'll find Secret Wool Society at the December 9-11 edition of the Bison. Until then, follow along on the Instagram! (Bonus - it features cats!)
