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.
