The View –  The Quiraing, Isle of Skye

The Colours of Camusdarach

Whenever I want to escape the house, the beaches of the West Coast of Scotland call. This beach is one of my favourites, the colour of the water, the texture of the fine sand, the view to the islands all help me to reconnect with nature. Something I think many of us have found joy in, in these challenging times.

Fingals Cave, Staffa.

Fingals Cave is famous cave on the Island of Staffa. It is known for its amazing rocks formations. This picture is inspired by a trip there in August. The rocks are a reminder of how incredible the world can be, and how we can reconnect with ourselves through mother nature.

Kaleidoscope | Online Exhibition 2020
Welcome to the first online exhibition of the International Feltmakers Association.

This selected exhibition is made up of an eclectic mix of work by IFA members selected by a panel of judges who are experts in their respective felt specialisms.

The exhibition is a positive outcome of COVID 19 and many of the works have been created by the artists at home during the global lockdown.

The theme of Kaleidoscope was chosen as it can be interpreted in an endless number of ways, through colour, texture, shape and form, as our members have shown us with their unique styles and creative interpretations.

To view each artist, please click on the image below and you will be taken to the artist’s page. There are 58 artists to see so please scroll along at the bottom of this page to see them all.
