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.

The 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence was a fabulous five days in October 2011 at Bunbury Western Australia.

Creatures from the Deep

Continuing our look at things that live in the waters that surround Bunbury and appear in our felt creations; one of our favourites is the beautiful elegant sting rays that can sometimes be seen sunning themselves on hot afternoons in shallow water.

These felt fish were created by Davida Palmer from a Judit Poc workshop.

This shoal of fish was made by Sue Seaman.  Each fish is about 80 cm long.  The felt was hand dyed to get the right colour  and then machine embroidered to give the effect of scales.  The fins and tails were made from organdy; again machine stitching was added.  Each fish had a metal wire inserted into the body and held by a block of wood.

The finished piece was entered into the 1998 South West Survey.
