the dye pot today – FeltUnited for 2010

FeltUnited's 2010 colour range

Another productive day in the studio (and it is not even noon!). FeltUnited as many of you know is fast approaching (at least for Elis and I). There are a series of projects ongoing in the studio (well mostly in my head for now) that require some preplanning .. ie dyeing fibre.

    what attracts you to felt and feltmaking?

    What is Felt United and how did you decide to form this group

    How many feltmakers/artists are members of Felt United?

    Can anyone join Felt United? Novice, intermediate, or advanced feltmakers?

    What events do you have planned for this October?

    You use colors as themes. Will you explore other types of themes for the future?

    Anything that you would like to add?
