The alpacas, chickens and lambs all got a special guest visitor from the neighborhood once it was warm enough. Hunter is a local boy who got to feed the alpacas, hold a lamb and a chicken and enjoy the ranch while he visited with family friends. He also learned how to handle the animals and how to take care of them. He had a very fun time.
Wool is for more than just Spinning...
Her first plan was to use the felted wool as insulation in the walls of Juanita. While Miranda started dismantling the bus, she found that the walls had already been insulated. So she decided to leave it as it was; now her new plan is to use the wool for felted rugs and bedding for the bus.
You can see more of Miranda’s work by following her on instagram @juanitasmobilegallery or checking out her BFA Show coming up this April 2017
When: Install from April 6th-14th, Opening & talk April 13th 5:00pm
