Felt Passion by Ellen Bakker and Ricarda Aßmann

Book Review: Felt Passion

Felter Skelter - Needle Felt Art Inspiration

Welcome to Felter Skelter, your essential guide for needle felting inspiration and ideas!

I received a copy of the book Felt Passion by Ellen Bakker and Ricarda Aßmann, which showcases the work of 95 contemporary felt artists, all from German-speaking countries. Despite spending a lot of time looking at felt artwork online, many of these artists were new to me. Each was given the opportunity to briefly explain their passion for felt as a medium, which I found to be a thoughtful and fitting addition to the real focus of the book: 750+ gorgeous photos that range from wearable art to sculpture and installation.

I’ve chosen a few of my favorites to share with you here – if you like these, then I definitely encourage you to visit textile-link.com for more!
