European felt days

A unique event in France around the discovery of wool felt and its artistic variations.

Since 2009, Felletin has become the Capital of Wool Felt for a week. From the “Birthplace of tapestry” to “European Felt Capital”, there is only one step ! Aubusson’s little sister has a long history of developing and enhancing wool and its woolen skills. In fact, today you can discover there, on guided tours, the artisanal wool spinning Terrade and the Pinton tapestry workshops, witnesses of this active wool sector.

The biennial explores all the creative facets of the world of wool felt during this European event: artistic exhibition, professional and beginners training (a selection of the best specialists and different techniques to discover the multiple possibilities of this knowledge of this know-how with LAINAMAC), felt market with stands of designers, raw materials… everything for felting and fashion show.

See your from April 12 to 18, 2021, for the next edition.

 

THE EXHIBITION / COMPETITION

Each biennial is an opportunity to discover the range of possibilities and the technicality of wool felt. An imposed theme allows the “feutriers”, who answer the call for competition, to give free rein to their imagination. The variations are multiple: felt nuno, needle, soap… The exhibition is the highlight of the event; the visitor finds colorful works, sometimes offbeat, often surprising. Difficult to remain insensitive !

To discover in April 2021, at the Eglise du Château
