Beverly Hauenstein   – Mount Vernon, OH white wool wrap with various leaf eco prints

Beverly creates one-of-a-kind textiles using only leaves and flowers. The process is known as Eco Printing, which allows nature to share its beauty. Beverly utilizes natural fabrics such as wool, silk, linen and cotton to create handmade scarves, wraps, jackets, ponchos, table runners, aprons, pillows, bags, and wall hangings. The natural tannins are extracted from the leaves to create color and prints. The process of eco printing has given Beverly a new appreciation for the gifts of nature

Holley Morris – Columbus, OH  image of landscape made of wool and fiber

Holley works with wool roving because of its delicacy and strength. Holley believes that wool’s willingness to be manipulated makes it a perfect medium for depicting the natural world. Their subject matter is often a traditional landscape, or a bird and flower. Wool adds a dimension that brings a subject to life in a much different way than paint.
