Open Day: Canberra Region Feltmakers

Open Day

Canberra Region Feltmakers will showcase master felt makers at work in our pop up studio in conjunction with the ‘Celebration’ exhibition. Felt makers will be using a variety of complex wet felting techniques as they develop felted textiles from design concepts to finished artworks. Entry is free and parking is free.

See felted work made by our members this year in the online Canfelt Along: Celebration. Celebration means many things including special events, festivals and recognising achievements.

Included in the exhibition is a series of spectacular wreaths made collaboratively by our members using a combination of felt and natural plant material. These wreaths are for sale with proceeds going to charity.

Visitors will be able to shop for hand made felted garments, accessories, homewares and festive gifts made by members of Canberra Region Feltmakers.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
