Feltmakers Ireland are delighted to announce details of our forthcoming exhibition to be held in Farmleigh in Dublin at the end of September
Building bridges through feltmaking
25th September - 12th October 2014
An exhibition of felt works by members of Feltmakers Ireland and feltmakers from Hungary to celebrate the friendship we built up over the past few years through our common interest and love of feltmaking . We have shared and exchanged skills, explored each other`s history, traditions and heritage. We are actively creating heritage for the future through our shared passion for handcrafts in our multi-cultural world. This ancient craft is a great medium for innovation and design.
Building connections has never been easier. Technology allows us to keep in touch with each other easily, making friends, getting to know each other even if we`ve never met or never will. We may not even understand each others languages but speak the common language of felt. As part of a complex network system we play different roles by different rules in our modern multi-cultural society.
We are connected by our shared passion for an ancient craft which is undergoing a renaissance and where we are creating heritage for the future. Current issues on common ground.
