Fashioning Felt

The Cooper-Hewitt’s Fashioning Felt exhibition explores how versatile one of the earliest techniques of textile making actually is, as well as how it’s being used in contemporary design.

This past week we had the luxury of speaking with artist/educator Rachel Miller, who will be teaching “The Fabric of Fashion,” a workshop at the Cooper Hewitt this spring.

Miller says… “This exhibition displayed some of the most diverse and innovative works in the felt medium. Being that felting is one of the most ancient fiber techniques, this exhibition shows incredible versatility: from fashion, to installation, industry, product design, and interior design. As a fiber artist myself, I find great inspiration in seeing how this historical medium has such strong contemporary presence in both the arts and design world, and it is an exhibition that is definitely worth seeing.”


Fashioning Felt will be on display at the Cooper Hewitt until September 7th. To find out more you know what to do.
