La dame au feutrage
I've a wonderful friend who has talents aplenty. In particular I adore the silk and felted wool scarves she makes. They are vibrant and delicate, warm and elegant, and full of whimsy.
Felting is actually one of those arts that Waldorf schools seem to call to. Be it in Australia or here, Switzerland or Germany, skilled felters emerge from this nourishing environment. The nourishment is mutual. At Christmas fairs, and occasionally at our "portes ouvertes" open house days, there's a stand to sell the handiwork made by parents and teachers collaborating over tea and cookies.
Sylvie, however, is an act unto herself. If you find what she does marvelous (as I do) you can write to her in English or French at email@example.com She lives just outside Avignon, but can easily send photos and ship to wherever.
