Felters’ Fling 2017
An intensive, week long, felting experience for fiber artists
August 19 to August 27 Snow Farm, Williamsburg, Massachusetts Online Registration will begin February 5 at 9 pm Eastern Standard Time
Felters’ Fling offers a unique venue, where 80 or more feltmakers gather from North America and abroad. There are twelve different workshops to choose from taught by the finest felt art instructors from around the world. Camaraderie and creativity flourish as ideas and knowledge are shared. The open space and tranquil setting of Snow Farm provides a supportive, encouraging environment where new friends are made and old friendships are renewed. A fashion show, ‘Mad Hatters’ parade, participant exhibition, instructor presentations, access to felting labs from early morning until late at night, and stimulating conversations over wonderful meals, make the fling an unforgettable 8-day experience.
Snow Farm, the New England School of Craft, has ideal facilities for feltmaking in a comfortable rural setting. Participants select two different 3-day workshops or one 6-day workshop (for more in-depth study). In addition to what is learned in one’s own workshops, there are numerous opportunities to learn from what others are doing in their workshops as well. Each class is limited to 10-12 participants, allowing for as much personal instruction as possible.
Other activities include a wine and cheese reception, evening presentations by guest instructors, a felt and fiber bazaar for buying and/or selling, special programs, morning exercise, demonstrations, and massage for those tired muscles. Join us for a full week and immerse yourself in the art of feltmaking!
