I am Flóra Carlile-Kovács, a Seattle-based felt artist and instructor, born and raised in Hungary. To see my art work please visit my website.
In one of my workshops at the Pacific Northwest Art School, my students came up with the idea, if I could organize a tour to Hungary, where they could learn from the amazing Hungarian felt masters, and also, travel in the country, try our delicious foods, visit Turkish bathes etc. This daydream soon become true, I led my first Felt Tour to Hungary in 2016.
In the past years, this job become a mission, where I can introduce wonderful people to the tour participants, organize world-class felt workshops for them, take them to amazing places that no guide books would recommend, connect them with outstanding Hungarian craftsmen and artists, visit contemporary craft markets and antique/flea markets.
