Artwork 3 
Hollyhocks Garden (nuno-felted summer dress)

The dress was cut from a nun-felted scarf and reconnected again into a summer dress. It was designed based on my childhood memories of my Grandmother’s garden in the Ukraine. It reconnects me with a happy place to be.

Materials and Techniques:
Prefelt was made with finest Merino 18 micron, with silk , viscose fibres, hand-dyed silk tissues. Then is was cut in shapes and felted into a scarf using the finest silk fabrics. 
Because of the large design, it was not good as a scarf, so I have decided to cut it in order to make a dress. And in the end, it benefits the outcome.

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.
