2024 Exhibition

Auckland Felters are excited to be hosting our first group exhibition at the Franklin Arts Centre in Pukekohe from Tue 18th June until Mon 8th July 2024, titled:

Resilience – The Fibre That Connects Us

All of the pieces in our exhibition include either wet- or needle-felted wool.

We will be holding a large “Celebration of Felt” open day on Saturday 22nd June that will include:

  • Free felting taster sessions (come and have a go – places will be limited so be sure to arrive in plenty of time to sign up for your favourite session)
  • Felting demonstrations throughout the day
  • Traders supplying wool, other fibres, yarns and tools suitable for felting and other crafts.
  • Hand-made, felted gifts, clothing, accessories, homewares and more!
  • Live music

Always wanted to try felting? This is your chance – see you there!

Take a look at our online exhibtion catalogue to whet your appetite. All the pieces look sooo much better in person and there are a few “feely” pieces for you to touch too!

There’s lots of free parking at the back of the Franklin Arts Centre (accessible from Edinburgh St) and a lovely cafe too, why not make it a day out with friends and whanau?

  • Lynn Hefkey

  • Margaret Joppa
