Our third video for this year’s International Feltmakers Association AGM & Conference comes from Hungarian feltmaker, Flóra Carlile-Kovács, now living and working in Seattle, WA.
In her work she incorporates two bodies of knowledge, the nomadic traditions and the urban, modern style of feltmaking.
Flóra’s video is a comprehensive overview of shrinkage. She discusses the factors that influence the shrinkage of the felt and how various layouts influence the proportions of the shrinkage. Find out how to achieve even shrinkage but also how to use different layouts and shrinkage methods to dictate the final shape of a piece.
Remember! 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.
