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.

Bunbury Felting Group - 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence ABN 62663714697

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

The Convergence may be over but we are still felting so please join us at the Bunbury Felting Group blog.

Important Convergence Announcement - Guess Who's Coming to Tutor

We are  very excited about the wonderful tutors we are having at the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence. They  include some of the biggest names in felt making and design, to give you a program that will challenge and extend your felt making to the highest levels.

We are pleased to announce one of our keynote tutors will be the internationally renowned feltmaker and author Liz Clay .

Most felters will know Liz through  her book “NUNO FELT” which has to be the most comprehensive instruction book on combining wool fibres with fabrics that is available.  It is certainly one of our favourites and if you haven't got this valuable resource in your own library then we recommend you get one.  (Perhaps Liz will have some signed copies for sale at the Convergence?) 

Liz is the current president of the International Feltmakers Association and a much celebrated felter and designer from England.

In addition, Liz has been featured in Vogue magazine and has worked for the Givenchy fashion house and for the amazing Stella McCartney.

She has not visited Australia before and she is very excited about joining us at  the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence and also getting to see some of our great country. 

We are so pleased that she is able to join us .  She will be running a number of segments at the Convergence so everyone will be able to enjoy the  Liz Clay experience with their felting.

Keep tuning in to our Convergence Blog for another Tutor announcement shortly.
