The Cottonwood Public Library’s Artist’s Corner program is an informal live-art demonstration held on the third Tuesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The purpose of the program is to inspire patrons to create their own art while also promoting and supporting the wealth of talented local artists in the Verde Valley area. Tuesday, February 20 will feature handspun yarn with Carla Hansen. Hansen is a spinner, weaver, dyer, art batt maker, and lover of all things woolly and soft. She lives with her husband and their seven children in Cottonwood. Carla started weaving in 2003 and then started Purple Lamb Fiber Arts in 2011. She enjoys creating new colorways and textures for her line of luxury artisan yarns and art batts. Her yarn and fiber can be found at www.purplelamb.etsy.com, and her blog, which is full of tutorials, interviews with pattern designers, and more, can be found at www.purplelambfiberarts.com. Hansen says she will be happy to let you take a "spin" on her wheel when you stop by. The library is located at 100 S 6th St in Cottonwood.
