500 Felt Objects

Recently a felting of Robin’s was included in the latest book of the popular “500 Series”. From garments to carpets to vessels, from home decor to installations, 500 Felt Objects is an impressive, flagship display of masterful felt creations. This very diverse collection honours the work of traditional fibre artists side-by-side with avant-garde designers and a broad range of styles, colours and forms help reveal felt’s full potential. The pieces, which include a broad range of styles, colours and forms, are a constant surprise and delight.
