filzfun: Issue 76, autumn 2022
Published on August 19
From felt in textile art to felt costumes at a horse show to a felt shoe for the injured hoof of a donkey, the spectrum of topics in the fall issue of filzfun ranges. We present a portrait of three felt artists and craftswomen: Bella McBride from Canada and Hendrijke Kühnapfel from the Allgäu region have brought it to perfection in handling the felting needle and create impressive animal sculptures – each in her very own handwriting. Austrian Claudia Wirtitsch specializes in street shoes made of felt and leather.
Several creative women have taken up the felting network’s exciting challenge of felting green projects without using green wool. We report on their experiences and show the results of their experiments.
