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.

And Now For Something Different

Earlier this year a “Celebrity Art Bra” event was held to raise funds for the Val Lishman Health Research Foundation Breast Cancer Survivors Project.
As we all have friends and family that have been affected by the disease The Bunbury Felters were keen to get involved and create some art bras for the event.
A celebrity was chosen for each artist to create a “bra” for.  You will see why we have used inverted commas around the word bra as we show you the bra art in the weeks to come.
The  bras are not all felt but they are all fun and fabulous so we know you want to see them.  Keep looking in at the blog to see them appear from time to time.

Our first bra was created by designer Jean Braund.  Her celebrity is Don Hancey - one of Western Australia’s most dynamic and innovative chefs known for his simple, yet brilliant, ability of pairing regional produce and premium Australian wines. Hi is a key supporter of the Chefs Long Table lunch events which to raise money for local charity each year.

Jean has captured the essence of Don in this mixed media creation.

The "cups" are baking tins of course.

All topped with a fish on a baking tray.

And this is how it looks on –

Don’t you wish you had a waist like that?
