IFA Members’ Online Exhibition 2021 ReConnect

The International Feltmakers Association launched our current exhibition Kaleidoscope in July of this year. It provided inspiration for our members and features fabulous felt work from around the world. Although we cannot see the work in person, the exhibition has the advantage of being visible to all, wherever they are in the world and can be viewed repeatedly. If you would like a project to work on during the winter months, we are launching another online exhibition to coincide and link with the AGM in March 2021

For our second online exhibition, we would like submissions of images of 2D and 3D felt work from members of the IFA, on the theme, ReConnect.
