Felt United … October 6, 2018 … Texture

Just two more weeks remaining until Felt United Day. Yes, Saturday, October 6, 2018 is just around the corner. Nicola and I hope that you are enjoying this year’s theme, ‘Texture’, where members of our Facebook Felt United group have been posting some amazing works with fabulous textures. Have you created your piece(s) yet? If not, no worries, you still have time to submit your image(s).  We are certainly looking forward to seeing your vision for this year’s theme. You are free to make anything that you’d like, in any colorway, so long as it has textural elements. This is a great opportunity to play with some new techniques that you’ve been meaning to try and definitely a great time to use up some of your wool and embellishing stash in order to create fabulous textures in your piece. 

When you have a minute, do head over to Facebook to see the submissions (from this year and year’s past) from Felt United members all around the world. We look forward to seeing many more photos on our Felt United Facebook page. We also love hearing how you might celebrate International Felt United Day (October 6). Once you’ve made your plans, please be sure to paste a link to your event on the Felt United Events page so that others in your area are made aware of what’s taking place.

We wish everyone all the best for Felt United 2018. Here’s to creativity, worldwide friendships, our love of feltmaking, and TEXTURE. If you are looking for a little textural inspiration to get you started, here is a sampling of images that have been submitted from a few of our Felt United members (images top left by Evelyn Refsahl‎,  top center by‎ Willeke van der Stel, top right by Camelia Wogu.

Together, We Felt United,

Author:Dawn Edwards/Felt So Right

I am a felt/fiber artist and instructor. I love to share the joys of feltmaking with others, having taught within the U.S. and internationally. I specialize in fun, out-of-the ordinary felt hats sold under the name of Felt So Right through specialty retail, boutique and gallery shops throughout the United States.I live in Plainwell, Michigan, where I work from my home studio. I believe that we are all artists....That it is the soul deep need to create. I love and appreciate so many of the arts, but I have found my passion through feltmaking. I find such joy in the alchemy of turning a few ounces of wool into a thing of beauty, limited only by the imagination and I find that the unique sculptural and color possibilities always inspire creativity. I have studied feltmaking with renowned felt and fiber artists from around the world. Feltmaking has truly opened windows to the world for me and I am grateful for this most wonderful opportunity. www.feltsoright.com
