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.

World of WearableArt Awards Show 2010 Continued - Happy Australia Day

As today is Australia Day we thought we should celebrate by focusing on one of our Australian entries into the 2010 World of Wearable Art.

Anyone who has registered their interest in attending the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence 2011 will recognise this image as we are using it for the cover of our Information and Enrolment Form.

Entered into WOW's South Pacific Section, Kerry described the inspiration as  - "Tribal songs were passed down the generations and sung by the indigenous people to navigate this harsh land".

Here's how it looked WOW's World of WearbleArt Awards Show 2010 Brochure -

The garment is felt of course but includes a wire framework to give it definite WOW appeal.  Here is how it looked on the WOW catwalk -
