Look for a review of felt :: feutre canada's Shrine exhibition by our media director, Lesley Buxton, in the latest edition of Felt, Australia’s premiere felting magazine. Lesley collaborated on the piece with former felt :: feutre canada president Fiona Duthie. The article features work by Kimberly Tucker, Sheila Thompson, Ayami Stryk, Diane Krys, Carmen Laferriere, Tina Sharapova, Dianne Goossens, Christina Ferguson, and Sandra Barrett.
SHRINE was a group exhibition created by felt :: feutre canada members from across Canada. The exhibition asked participating artists to make a portable shrine that paid homage to a belief they held close to their heart. This belief could be based in religion, but could also be secular; a testament to an object/theme selected by the feltmaker.
Felt magazine aims to inspire fibre enthusiasts with incredible artist profiles, technical articles, a gallery of creations by different felt artists, and great projects and techniques to try. Techniques include: wet felting; dry felting (including needle felting – by machine or hand); and further embellishment using many techniques, including hand or machine embroidery.
The June 2019 edition (Felt, Issue 21) features articles such as: The Art of Ghynchacha by Vladislav Grass, Meet the Maker by Ellen King, and Symbolism and Ritual in the Land of Felt by Martien van Zuilen, who edited this edition of the magazine. Projects in this edition include: a Selkie Wrap by Ellen King, Fairy House Lights by Sue Espie, and Unicorn Slippers by Jennie Curtis.
