Felt passion is a felt collection all made by German speakers collated by Ellen Bakker of Textiellink. It is currently exhibing at Meervilt in Haarlem. The book Felt Passion is amazing and the exhibition interestingly contains some of the artists from the book , but features different work. Last week I tried to visit with my good friend Els , but due to a suspect terrorist alert in Rotterdam staton , which cancelled all the trains for the whole morning we never made it . This week I made it , but sadly had to go on my own.
It was wonderful to see the variety of felt , large and small, 2D and 3D on display, such a huge amount of inspiration. As usual with such event a picture cannot really capture the tiny special details or the real feel of the pieces but here are some of my favorites.
This felted but photographic piece , is amazing and actually some of the ladies have real lace trims on their bonnets.
An architectural bag made by Hella Grunhage- Hoffmann finishes my collection of favorites from the totally wonderful exhibition , if you get a chance to see it you must go !
