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.

Two Conferences

I am interested in two up coming conferences.

First up, Felt-Feutre Canada, it is in Penticton in the Okanagan, and we will go see a couple of friends and visit the gallery show and maybe the vendors market. I have a desire to do some wet felted containers.

The second conference,  the Association of sewing and design professionals, is in Vancouver and has master class workshops and fashion shows, i would like to take in the gallery show and the vendors market. I have seen Ivan Sayers give a variety of talks, each one different and fun. His personal collection is enormous  and he is very knowledgeable.
