      Draft & Craft with felt artist Billy Kheel

      As part of the fifth annual Holiday Marketplace at Grand Central Market, nationally and internationally exhibited artist Billy Kheel shows you how to express yourself in felt and thread.  Kheel, who was featured on the first season of NBC’s Making It with Amy Poehler, creates fabric soft soft sculptures, wall hangings, portraits and installations that challenge traditional gender roles and concepts about masculinity, while  his use of material questions the boundary between art and craft.  Grab a craft beer or glass of wine upstairs in the Market and then join Kheel in the downstairs seating area for a hands-on session in which he provides all the materials and instructions for you to make a framed framed 4" x10" landscape of Los Angeles in felt to take home. Everyone can custom tailor the landscape to what in LA is meaningful to  him or her -- be it desert, beach or cityscape -- and Billy will precut some of the more detailed  silhouettes like the Hollywood sign and the Capitol Records Building.  We will have examples and reference/inspirational artwork to get the creative juices flowing…..if the beer or wine don't give you a head start!   $45 per person includes all craft materials. Beer and wine are not included.
