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.

South West Fashion - Art to Wear Organic Fashion

Moving away from scarves, let's have a look at some of the jackets featured on the catwalk.


This long sleeveless vest is created from a mix of silk and merino wool.  We should make it clear that the merino wool is 100% Australian as the creator Lorraine McArthur is very committed to the promotion of the Australian wool industry which quite rightly she says produces the best wool  in the world  for making high quality felt for garments.


Saying that, we think this piece has a Japanese influence.


It also illustrates how wearable and light nuno felt is today, just look at the movement in these pictures -
