Through the filzfun spring issue runs a distinct thread – to be more precise, a colored thread. In several contributions we meet corals and other fascinating brightly colored maritime creatures. A whole “reef” from felted corals was made as a joint project initiated by the Dutch felt association ViltKontaktGroep, inspired by a crocheted sea installation by the sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim that is currently on show in Baden-Baden.
The Dutch felt artist Saar Snoek is especially involved with the underwater wonderworld. Many of her objects are based on the overwhelming forms and colors of maritime organisms. She is much taken by the Nudibranchia, a sea slug, that she fondly calls „Nudis“: colorful sea slugs, similarly differing in shape and coloring as butterflies on land. One of them, a beautiful star sea slug, served as the model for an exceptional brooch, for which Saar Snoek is giving step-by-step instructions.
Next to Saar Snoek we are pleased to introduce two other felt artists: Anna Vidák from Ungarn, who follows in the footsteps of her famous parents Mari Nagy und István Vidák, as well as Galina Blazejewska, a born Russian who lives in Poland now. Both have found their call in life in feltmaking.

Apart from the coral installation in The Netherlands, some other communal projects have deepened the connections within the feltmaking scene: We present Annie Veldkamp’s SHARE project, during which she was able to collect about 2000 felt dolls, in part lavishly embroidered, and Gabriele Schilcher‘s tree wall hanging with its crown made of wish leaves designed by textile artists from several countries.
