My sister and I have started a new and exciting venture. 

Enter Goatfeathers Studio
 
 
 
      Goatfeathers Studio is a mixed media and fiber arts space dedicated to both the creation and sharing of a love for textiles.  The purpose of the studio is to offer a space where artists can come to learn new and exciting ways to work with textiles and mixed media.  A series of workshops will explore textile manipulation, surface design and mixed media applications.     
    
 
The owners, Celeste Beck, and her sister, Merri McKenzie, have had a lifelong interest in textiles.  Both sisters grew up sewing and went on to enjoy careers in education.  Now retired, the sisters have joined forces to share their enthusiasm for their love of textiles and mixed media.
     

     The studio is located in Fort White, Florida conveniently accessible from I-75.  The workshops are limited in size so that each participant can explore the techniques, process, or project that is being offered.  The sisters believe that a small group setting allows independent discovery for each student to explore their creative boundaries.
     Don’t be shy --- take up the challenge to learn new and exciting techniques to enhance your fiber art work.  Your creative journey begins with intention.  Let us assist you in your creative development.  Workshops are offered the second Wednesday of each month.  All supplies and tools are provided and the modest fee includes a light lunch.  Vegetarian menus are available on request.
     Please check the schedule to register for your space to indulge in a personal journey of creation and share the excitement.  We look forward to meeting you and enjoying a day filled with surprises and fun. 
Merri and Celeste
