verFilzt Und zugeNäht: Issue 40
In this autumn issue of the FUN we have many creative techniques of felt and textile design for you. On the cover you can find child memories, that have been transferred into felt by the Russian artist Irina Andreeva. She masters to express emotions in detailed felt art and revive felt figures. On the backside of the magazine you find Irina Levkovich, who is wearing a rose dress from her lovely collection.
Individuality can play a big role in a community project like the art trail at the Naturpark Bergisches Land. One could observe beautiful art while having a nice walk along the art trail. Another community project that we report of is Filzfieber (engl.: felting fever). Each participant works on their own piece but in the end one big harmonic community piece evolves.
A great art work has been put together by the group around »woodland boudoir«. You can read all about this installation and have a look at gorgeous pictures in our report about the art work at the Wasserturm in Dachau.
When Suzanne Fleischmann and her husband decided to have some of their own sheep, her own work actually had even more value to it. In our rubric sheep she talks about her experiences in keeping a flock of sheep, and in our artist portrait Suzanne shows different techniques in making hats and accessories. Diane Lemire loves wool too. She uses silk and nature fibers to express her art.
Barbara Schmidt’s signature is expressed in tattoo art of felt and weaving. With carpets and sculptures she gives insight into her work. Another artist portrait is about Torill Haugsvær Wilberg. She came from architecture to felt making. Wearable felt art is getting developed in the house in her mind, and we do not want our readers to miss out on her amazing pieces.
