felt-feutre

On Saturday, I went to Penticton to see the felt-feutre canada conference exhibits.If you go to the site photos from the fashion show  are up to view.

It was a perfect day in Penticton and the exhibit was wonderful. wall hangings, clothing,  dresses and hats, vests and jackets, some purses as well. Art work for the home, pieces that hung from the ceiling, carpets on the floor, vessels and containers. fish and butterflies anf birds.

All the most wonderful colours. My pictures are not great but I do have a few photos that I will share but I don’t know the artists names. I had taken a class in nuno felting from Rene Corder Evans about 15-20 years ago. I loved this dress with the waist shaping details, the beading and the bust ruffle were great.

I also saw  Fiona Duthie, an artist that I have admired  for years. This is her dress with the hood collar and the other side was lighter in colour like a reverse fabric.

These playful sculptures were great and by Andrea  Graham. I wanted t to buy the programme but I couldn’t find them or anyone to pay for it.

    Rosemary, those are tremendous. Thanks for sharing them with us. My mom is really keen on artists who do this kind of work, so I was introduced for the first time last year. She has a terrific wall hanging of a felted garden which I love. I am especially struck by that bust ruffle on the first dress. The animals and fish are also neat and the dress with the hood collar something else. Great work by all.
