Saturday 2 October is the International Day of Felt – a day when felt makers around the world celebrate their craft by making something in the designated colours (this year blue/green/yellow) and making it public. see the call to artists on www.feltunited.com – your polit bureau thought it would be an interesting thing for Craft Reactor to contribute to.
Instead of organising a meet we’re having a virtual event. We’d like Craft Reactor members to make some kind of felt work according to the guidelines on the Felt United website. When you’re done take some photos of your creation and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll put all the Craft Reactor website and ask Felt United link to it.
If you haven’t made felt before here are some basic instructions
