PROGRAM: WoolBuddy World with Jackie Huang
Jackie Huang is a 3D story artist and art teacher whose passion for art transcends the boundaries of various art forms. His company, Woolbuddy, began as a desire to find a unique collection of toys for his newborn daughter. After searching for months and coming up empty handed, he decided that it was time for him to create his own collection of premium handcrafted felted animals that reflected the imaginative and magical world that he wanted to share with his daughter.
300 characters have come to life and now make up the six distinctive collections of the Woolbuddy World. There are Loveable Monsters, animals from The Zoo, Woolbuddies living on The Farm, Sea Creatures that swim through the ocean, reptiles that spend their day lounging around The Swamp, and Itty Bitty Critters that wonder throughout the land.
WoolBuddy products are often sold out at local museums, stores, and national conventions. Currently, the WoolBuddy collection can be found at the Crafts and Folk Art Museum as well as at national conventions such as Comicon, Wondercon, and Alternative Press Expo (APE) and events such as the Maker Faire.
