Martha Stewart's crew takes you behind the scenes of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum's "Fashioning Felt" exhibit, featuring handmade felt works along with artists who work with industrial felt including Kathryn Walter.
This presentation brings together two designers who incorporate felt into architecture from different perspectives. Both collaborate with designers to create decorative and functional installations. Kathryn Walter works primarily with industrial felt while Claudy Jongstra uses raw wool and natural dyes to make felt by hand.
Moderated by curator, Susan Brown.
With tongue in cheek Kathryn Walter takes you on a tour through the many ways that she uses felt in her home. Part “How-To,” part Public Service Announcement, this playful romp through the material culture of felt walks the line between practicality and farce.
