Felters' Fling 2011 Conference
An intensive, week long, felting experience for fiber artists
August 20 to August 28, 2011
at Snow Farm, Williamsburg, MA
Felters' Frenzy Day, August 24
While Wednesday will offer a break from studio classes, we are planning a wide range of optional activities to keep you hopping! We will offer special presentations, participant exhibitions, and a second day of the Felt and Fiber Bazaar. You can also just spend the day relaxing with a massage, exploring the area or getting to know all the great feltmakers gathered together for the Fling.
Across the Borders of Central Asia: My Journeys in Kyrgyzstan. Annemie Koenen will offer us a special presentation about her travels in Kyrgyzstan, her felting experiences and the families she has come to know well.
Student Exhibition: We love to see what all of you have been creating since the last Fling! Please bring one to three pieces to display in our exhibition. We hang the exhibition the evening of the 23rd and leave it open all day on the 24th
Felted Fashions Show: Please plan on bringing some of your special hand felted fashions to share with us on Felters' Frenzy Day. We plan to have a "run-way" of felt fashions immediately after dinner on August 24th.
Participant Demos, etc: We plan to make time available for participants to share their knowledge and special talents with others or participate in discussion groups on issues related to feltmaking, such as selling and pricing work, organizing shows, turning professional, etc. If you or your group would like to reserve time during the conference to show slides of your work, lead a discussion, demonstrate equipment or a technique please list information on your registration form-special interests section (or attach separately).
Professional Massage: Once again we will offer relief for those tired muscles with a wonderfully relaxing massage. A sign up sheet will be available once you arrive at Fling, so no need to make an advance appointment. In addition to Wednesday, we will also offer massage on several other days after classes.
