I Just Want To Hug My Friends

As conversations have turned to what we will do first, once Covid restrictions are no longer necessary, my answer has been very clear:  I just want to hug my friends.  I have a strong longing to reconnect to friends and the larger community, to feel the shared experience in a much less virtual way.


Materials and Techniques.

Wet felted merino wool, wire, polyfill stuffing.

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.
