Holy yak fibre! Chaotic Fibres has been selected as one of the feature vendors for felt::feutre 2016 in Penticton this September. We are delighted with the accolades we’ve been given in a recent news post on the felt::feutre website.
The September 21 – 25th international felting symposium offers access to some of the world’s most influential artists using felt as their medium, including Fiona Duthie from Salt Spring Island, Maria Friese from France, Charlotte Sehmisch from Germany as well as Melissa Arnold, Jean Gauger and Katia Mokeyeva from the USA. These renowned artists will be presenting workshops to cover many areas of felting, including surface design, nuno felting, shibori, garment construction, sculptural forms and dyeing.
Felt::Feutre’s symposiums in previous years have shattered expectations with their exhibitions of bold, dramatic pieces that challenge the boundaries of creating with felt. This year’s juried exhibition is titled “Migration” and will feature some of the best and most exciting work by Canadian fibre artists and fashion designers. We’re excited about having a chance to see this!
As one of the feature vendors for felt::feutre’s five day event, we have planned carefully, restocking the many favourite fibres our felters have always enjoyed, plus bringing in new products to test their imaginations and entice their sense of play. For locals who can’t make the trek to Penticton, we’ll have some sneak previews of our new products at Fibrations on August 21st.
