Dear Felters....Technology did not allow me to post images while in Europe. It seems an iPad is beyond the pale!
Therefore this is catch up time................
The BFG Felters Downunder have been very active, as usual, over the last few months.....
DOUBLE CONGRATULATIONS TO........
Overall winner in the Ag Art Competition at the Dardanup Bull and Barrel last weekend
whose garment won the prize for the "Best Out of Town" entry
Well done ladies
A new member and textile artist Carmen Tyrer from Waroona won 1st prize at the Waroona Show
Not a little bird, but rather a large one by the name of Laurence overheard Colleen reporting that
"Carmen showed us her beautiful and complex wraps made with ultra-fine local wool, hand dyed and using her own techniques to enable the wool to be felted".
Laurence is good at eavesdropping as he has also heard some hints that Sue Smorthwaite's work has been selected to go on show again. He is yet to find out more!
It has been reported that Sue#2 is back in Oz. and at the October meeting she gave an excellent demonstration to get the group thinking about interesting edges that add more detail to scarves, clothing, sculpture.
|Sue# shows her edges............|
|...........and what a variety!|
