Convergence is a gathering of felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme. It is four full days of immersion and indulgence in every aspect of felt making suitable for all levels of experience. Anyone interested in felt making and textiles should attend. There is no need to belong to a formal textile organisation or felting group. Just come along, learn, share, felt and have fun.

Felting Fashion at Work

After our 21st of June post on Lizzie Houghton's excellent book "Felting Fashion" we received an email from  blog reader and felter Shirl in Carterton New Zealand saying how much she loved the book and how it had inspired her to make some amazing jackets using the tips and techniques in it.

High praise in deed we thought and we had to see the results. So here is one of Shirl's beautiful creations a la Felting Fashion -

Shirl says that the photos were taken on the only sunny day they have had in quite some time!

Shirl tells us that the jacket is made from a coloured merino fleece with silk chiffon , silk organza and strips of silk scarves inlayed in a nuno technique. Silk tops were used scattered over the surface for added effect along with some orange and oatmeal coloured merino in fine wisps.

It is fabulous and we are very impressed.  Now, where did we put that book?
