The Victorian Feltmakers Inc. [VFI] is a not-for-profit organisation with over 100 members ranging from beginners to advanced feltmakers. We meet regularly to share the latest feltmaking techniques and keep up-to-date with happenings in the world of felt with natural and synthetic fibres. Our organisation is all about sharing and supporting the development of the feltmaking community.
Membership is available to feltmakers of all standards. All you need is an interest and desire to learn about this ancient, yet wonderfully modern, flexible technique to create anything from wafting fabrics to solid sculptural structures.
