Local and national events related to felt
The Canberra Region Feltmakers demonstrate feltmaking in the
Craft Exhibition at The Royal Canberra Show as well as
entering a large number of items in the Felt section.
Convergence is a gathering of Australian and New Zealand
felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme.
The last convergence was in Bunbury, Western Australia. It
has become customary to hold a Convergence every two years,
alternately in Australia and New Zealand, offering a great
opportunity for those interested in feltmaking to meet,
learn and share their knowledge.
This annual event for Canberra Region Feltmakers is held in
Jindabyne and members can book in to attend for individual
nights or the whole retreat. Five days of feltmaking in a
fun, informal atmosphere. This is not a formal workshop but
an opportunity to share ideas, techniques and stories.
