Sounds Crafty is a special series of craft showcases picked by Kiwi musicians, bands and DJs. Throughout the duration of New Zealand Music Month, Felt has featured the crafty stylings of Minuit’s Ruth Carr, The Twitch’s Fleur Jack, singer/songwriters Nathan King, Flip Grater, Hannah Curwood and Hera, and Richie Singleton and Conrad Wedde of The Phoenix Foundation. I’d like to thank all of these people for taking the time to visit Felt and support our local craft talent!
