Kendall White

Wet Felted Art Scarves

Kendall White began exploring fiber art at a very early age. Throughout her childhood, she was frequently recruited to help her grandmother hand-cut and piece cotton fabric for bed quilts. This sparked a lifelong affinity for fabric, fiber, and handmade items. She pursued her passion by earning a BFA in Fiber Arts from the Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville, Tennessee. Here, Kendall studied weaving, spinning, dyeing, and printmaking.

While attending a week-long workshop at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina, Kendall discovered and fell in love with one of the oldest forms of handmade textile creation: wet felting. Wet felting is the process of using a combination of friction/agitation, soap, and water to make felt out of wool fibers.

In 2011, Kendall moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. This vibrant city, known for its breathtaking landscapes, cultural richness, and thriving art scene, was the backdrop of her deep dive into felting and textile arts. The local surroundings left a significant imprint on her felted wool collections.

Kendall now works out of her home studio in Asheville, NC. For over a decade, she has been dedicated to honing her craft, constantly advancing her skills in dyeing, hand-painting, weaving, sewing, and felting. Kendall’s wearable art pieces have sold all over the United States and internationally. New York fashion icon Iris Apfel owned a few of her pieces, one of which can be spotted in the 2015 documentary IRIS. Each of her wearable art scarves is handmade, and no two are alike.
