KreaTov 2014 – Chic and high fashion is a felting symposium focused on felted fashion and accessories. Here you get the opportunity to meet enthusiastic felters, who are well known in the felting world and who will participate and share their knowledge. This year we have teachers from Japan, Switzerland, Lithuania and Sweden, and they are very experienced both in education and felting. The main language of the symposium is Swedish but don’t let that stop you from participation – the most practical language will be used at the courses!
KreaTov is a felting symposium held every second year on the beautiful island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Here you will get to enjoy the Gotlandic culture and environment and at the same time have an active vacation and get pleasant memories to look back on.
KreaTov 2014 – Chic and high fashion takes place at Gotlands Folkhögskola in Hemse (a school for adult education), June 25th-29th 2014. It starts Wednesday at 5 pm and ends on the Sunday at 2.30 pm. The symposium is arranged by Gotlands läns Hemslöjdsförening (The Handicraft association of Gotland).

You learn how to paint with wool on a chic little purse! First you felt a small bag without handles, or maybe a cell phone cover, or a purse. Then you decorate it with beautiful flowers. Accordning to Renata, everyone can paint with wool – you don´t need to know anything about painting! And everything is made with wet felting technique.
