First annual Kid Central Festival is hands-on fun

Bangor area children along with a parent learn wet felting from Jodi Clayton (left) at One Lupin Fiber Arts on Park Street in Bangor on Saturday during Kid Central Festival. Wet felting is the oldest form of felting, dating back to 4500B.C. according to Clayton who taught kids how to combine wrapping wool with water, soap and friction to create a solid felt ball to be used as a pet toy or decoration.
