Canberra Region Feltmakers has developed “Canfelt Along For Convergence” (CAFG) a new concept that combines a little mystery, some novel felting techniques and the opportunity to display work in an exhibition. Here is a chance to try something a little different. This event is online, which is perfect for these challenging times.

Each week, for one month, participants will be sent clues by different feltmakers for making wild and wacky beads (or at least small felted objects that can hang from a string) for a statement-piece necklace. The clues will include short videos demonstrating techniques or written notes and photos. Participants will be able to ask questions if anything needs extra explaining. There are no set times. Participants can work on the project when it is convenient to them.

While these clues will take felt-makers through the overall process, there will also be the opportunity to use personal design creativity.

The profits from CAFG will be provided to the organisers of the Southern Hemisphere Feltmakers Convergence to help fund an upcoming event in Canberra in 2023.

Registration is essential:
