Felt-Feutre Canada News and Events-January 2016

We are excited to announce the creation of a non profit association for Canadian Feltmakers! The original vision of felt :: feutre 2013 was to connect feltmakers across this huge country, and promote Canadian feltmaking around the world. We made a good start and with this new organization in place,  we are now ready pick up this work to support feltmakers at all skill levels, as well as our fiber producers and retailers.

Membership information is available here.
Membership registration will open on February 1st, 2016.

felt :: feutre 2016 : contemporary felt symposium, is the premiere event of Canadian Felting Week.  felt :: feutre 2016 will take place in Penticton, British Columbia,  the heart of wine country, from September 21st to September 25th, 2016. We have an exciting event planned with 5 days of workshops, an exhibition of works from talented Canadian feltmakers including an exhibition catalogue, a stellar fashion show, fibre sale and much more.

We have an exceptional line-up of internationally acclaimed workshop instructors include Maria Friese from France, Charlotte Sehmisch from Germany, Jean Gauger, Katia Mokeyeva & Melissa Arnold from the US and Canada’s Fiona Duthie. The classes range between two, three and five days, covering felting techniques  including surface design, garment making, dyeing, shibori and sculptural forms.
felt :: feutre 2013 received such enthusiastic support from feltmakers, suppliers, arts organizations and fibre art publications. It was amazing! And we know 2016 will only build on that success.  Every week we are meeting more people in the Canadian Felting world, which is what this project is all about. Connecting people interested in feltmaking across the country and promoting Canadian feltmaking around the world. We'll be introducing many artists working in felt through our Artists Profiles, plus including interviews with fibre suppliers, farms and galleries in our news features.

Thank you all for your support!
I look forward to working with you through this year in felt!
