Last year, we commissioned three videos for our virtual AGM and Conference as our gift to you, the members. These were so successful that we decided to do it all again! This time we have asked skilled feltmakers to create videos on the theme of Let’s Get Technical.
The three videos will be available to members from 27 March 2022, the day after the AGM. Just log on to the website, go to the Members Area and click on Videos for IFA Members.
Our first video, Eco Worrier, comes from Roz Dace and Judy Balchin, who are sisters and needle felters. As The Woolly Felters, they are known for their three dimensional, sculpted characters. They often make figures and animals that reflect and tell their own stories. Designs begin with thoughts and sketches which they develop into an initial clay 3D form. Then, as the felting needles start to breathe life into the wool, exciting challenges and possibilities emerge. The magic starts to happen.
Their video shows you how to needle felt a partially armatured figure and how to wet felt her wardrobe. The video is accompanied by a pdf with full instructions and materials list.
