Origins: Felt in the Natural World

I’ve re-blogged this article because I went along to Feltmakers Ireland’s exhibition at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin yesterday. It certainly brightened up an otherwise wet and gloomy day.

If you have the opportunity to pop along to Glasnevin do try to do so as there are some fantastic pieces on display. It was impossible to choose a favourite artwork from the nature inspired creations.

I’ve never tried felting properly myself though recently my daughter and I had a bash at turning an old jumper belonging to He Who Put the Shelves Up into felt. It worked quite well but made a mess of the washing machine so I think we would boil in a saucepan next time.

I’ll let you know about any future developments on The Landing feltmaking front!

The Feltmakers Ireland exhibition runs until 26th August at the National Botanic Gardens in the gallery above the tea rooms.
