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.

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

Art Bras

Second in our series of  “Celebrity Art Bras” to raise funds for the Val Lishman Health Research Foundation Breast Cancer Survivors Project here is the bra created by Convergence Convener - Val Hornibrook.

It was created for Jackie Happs of Happs Winery and is made of felt.

Felt balls make great grapes

Val's felt vessel making skills have been put to great use here.

It's as beautiful as a glass of Happs wine.

Love the felt bra..and the info about the southern hemisphere convergence..I live in the northern one..but perhaps if anyone wants an outsider's banner I'll aim to send you one!I've been making altar cloths/wall hangings/table runners for a venue here in Seattle using secondhand sari scraps..and creating "second stories " from them..will aim to support the Bunbury felters if not with a banner with good wishes from Seattle!

Hi Ginny, thank you so much for your comment and your kind offer of a banner. Yes, we'd love you to send us one from the north! Our postal address is on the right hand side bar under "Contact Us".

We have been having a look on your blog and we love your work. We have added you to our "Felt Network" so that the rest of our readers can enjoy your textile adventures too.
Thanks again Ginny and happy felting.
