About

I have made 2 books about feltmaking and more are to come.

'Felted boot slippers - a thorough guide' has already been translated into English. It needs a German version.

'Filt runde krukker' is only in Danish yet, and in English I think it will be something like 'Felted round vessels'. I would love it to be translated into German and English and maybe even more languages.

A whole series of feltmaking ideas is impatienly waiting to be published in a number of languages. This is what I ask for support to obtain.

And why is that?

I think feltmaking and craft in general  is necessary to humans. It combines our thoughts and our body, and it adds contemplation and sensory perception to the joy of playing with colours and materials.

In feltmaking you start with a fiber and end up with a creation. It can be a piece of art or a useful object for wearing, or making your life comfortable in a beautuful way. You experience a complete process with hand and mind, which is benevolent to both children and grownups, especially in an increasingly digital world.

Risks and challenges

I have already published two books in Danish, and I know how to continue the process having them translated into Enlish and German. I don't see any risks, really.
