This weekend a group of eight felters made new work for the Filzkunstpfad am Lebensgarten Steyerberg, Germany and I'm excited and proud to be one of them!
Here are some pictures of my contribution to the Filzkunstpfad. This hat represents the history of the site, built as housing for army purposes in the late 1930s. Black and white for the painted stripes that are still visible on the walls. They made it easier to detect and then shoot people who tried to escape. The soft, skin coloured squares are reference to the wall of the Lebensgarten chapel in the centre of this now peaceful community.
Put on the hat, meditate on this history for a minute and don't forget the selfie!
