This is our digital portal to a world where art meets social impact. We’re glad you found it because you belong here.
You belong because you heard about the work and it struck a chord.
You belong because you have the power to commission, co-fund, volunteer or simply encourage Pure Felt to deliver life changing projects.
You belong, because like us, at the end of the day, you know that beauty matters and art is powerful, but only when people are able to interact with it.
We hope that you spend some time looking around the website and become a frequent visitor to our blog. You’ll get to witness the impact we’re making and how you can be involved. Here are a few pointers to get you started:
– Check out our projects page here. We’re so proud to have created some amazing work with some amazing people. You have joined us just as we launch a new program with the International School in Zug. A program that will provide education across multiple disciplines of felting, curating, and fundraising for a feasibility study for the discovering hands© concept in Switzerland so that gifted blind women can be trained and employed as lifesaving early breast cancer detecting examiners. We’ll be keeping you up to date on progress so sign up for the blog here so you don’t miss a moment.
– If you came to learn more about our commissioning process we can help with that. You can contact us here or get more familiar with our process here. You provide the oxygen to many of our projects so we are pleased to say that we have honed a very straight forward process to help corporations and individuals sponsor projects.
– From an art or craft background yourself? Well, we’re very excited about The Guild. This is our community of mentors, educators and practitioners who keep our heart beating, learn about the Guild here.
– And no digital portal would be complete without the buzz of social media, so please do join our Facebook page here. We love to share our thoughts and ideas. Please be part of that discussion, whether it’s how we can help struggling refugees, or how we can be inspired by a simple thought or object and be called into action.
You belong in this community that is tirelessly committed to its mission: to evoke social impactful change through unique felt art projects, and we thank you for your time, support and encouragement.
