Flower Studio Demo Artist Mary Carol Jehn

Mary Carol Jehn will be in the Flower Studio at the Denver Art Museum noon-3 pm, July 18 and 19 to demonstrate crocheting and knitting flowers.

Knitting has been an addiction for Mary Carol Jehn since the age of six. While she went to school to be a pianist, she decided knitting was what she wanted to pursue. The idea of her business came almost ten years ago when she and some friends got together once a week to knit and crochet. The idea of opening a shop came up and when the opportunity came, Jehn opened her store LambShoppe in Denver. Lambshoppe is a store for yarn, knitting, and crocheting supplies, as well as different classes. The shop has a community feel with a coffee bar and plenty of room for visitors to meet, hang out, and work. Jehn states, “It’s ongoing always. I can say there’s not one week that goes by where I don’t learn something new about knitting or crocheting."

Jehn uses LambShoppe as her personal studio. She has at least 5-10 projects currently on needles in her shop. She typically works on projects to help prepare her to teach the different classes offered. There are around 15-20 different classes at the shop including a 12-step program to introduce visitors to yarn, knitting, and crocheting.

Ariel Spiegelman was an intern in the department of learning and engagement at the Denver Art Museum. She is getting her master's at the University of Texas in Austin in art education, and her favorite monthly event at the museum is Untitled Final Fridays.
