An ancient art in modern hands: the beautiful felted work of Fibrefusion

Whanganui fibre artist Tina Schurhammer’s interest in felting is part of a lifelong exploration of crafting and creative techniques. She was introduced to felting in her thirties and is now passionate about the ancient art of felt making – producing attractive and practical everyday objects as well as beautiful works of art in her Felt shop Fibrefusion. Crafting in sustainable materials fits both with her environmental beliefs and with the organic nature of her work.

Cosy creature comforts

There’s nothing like the snuggle-factor of pure vintage New Zealand wool in winter, and it’s also the perfect thing to keep hot water bottles safely covered for the kids – or you! Felt maker Adventures of Alex O & Co has a truly gorgeous range of hottie covers decorated with all sorts of cute characters (and equally snuggly and cute cushion covers too!) so we reckon they’re the perfect way to stay cosy until the end of the colder months.
