In Winter Margrit creates many types of felt objects. In 2012 a Felt Project in the Nambucca valley took place. Ten Aboriginal women artists created, with the help and expertise from Margrit Rickenbach, created a big body of artwork in felt.
An exhibitionof this work was held in Boomaali Gallery in Sydney and a catalogue was printed.
Felt and textile work can be seen at the "Atelier" in Bowraville 2449 Australia.
Felting originated in Central Asia, and was a way of making
insulation. Felt is made by layering cleaned, carded wool to a desired
thickness, then wetting and rubbing it until the fibres mat.
Margrit saw the craft being used to make clothes and to build
the traditional Mongolian houses known as yurts during a visit to
that country in 1995.
