Exhibition - Felt Through Contact

Farfield Mill is the only venue in the UK to host this stunning exhibition 'Viltkontaktgroep', opened by Mary Burkett, OBE, President of the International Feltmakers Association. The work of 53 members of the 500 strong Dutch Felting Association, which is celebrating its 21st Anniversary, is show-cased throughout the centre, from functional objects to fashion items to wall hangings. A must not only for felt lovers, but lovers of texture, colour and exciting sculptural pieces.

Exciting, conceptual, inspiring and innovative - just some of the adjectives that describe but do not encapsulate what is arguably the felt exhibition of the year. It came to Sedbergh direct from Holland and will return at the end of its Farfield run; a one-off opportunity to see a truly remarkable array of work. Adrian Mullen, Westmorland Gazette Jan 23rd 2014
