Canberra Regional Feltmakers are excited to bring you this new concept combining fun, a little mystery, some novel felting techniques and the opportunity to display your work in an exhibition. Here is a chance to try something a little different.
How does it work?
Each week, for one month, you will be given clues by different feltmakers for making wild and wacky beads (or at least small felted objects that can hang from a string) for a necklace. The clues will include short videos demonstrating techniques or written notes and photos. You will be able to ask questions if anything needs extra explaining. There are no set times. You can work on the project when it is convenient to you.
While these clues will take you through the overall process, there will also be the opportunity to use your own design creativity. This is not an exercise in everyone creating an identical item although there will be similarities.
The profits from Canfelt Along For Convergence will be provided to the organisers of the Southern Hemisphere Feltmakers Convergence following the Felt Road convergence planned to be held in Canberra, ACT Australia in 2023.
Before the Canfelt Along for Convergence begins you will be given a materials list including some ideas for colour combinations. Many of the materials can probably be sourced from your stash.
A basic knowledge of how felt is made is assumed. The instructions will be in English.
Registration is essential. Entry in the exhibition is included. This event is open to all felt makers. Secure online payment is available through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account).
