Marjolein Dallinga

Marjolein Dallinga Bloom felt

Marjolein Dallinga was born in the Netherlands where she studied Fine Arts. She moved to Montréal, Canada, in 1989 to pursue her art career through making art books and jewelry. While raising a family, her creativity led her to toy making and teaching art classes. This led her to discover felting, and she now works in this medium. The world-renowned CIRQUE DU SOLEIL became interested in Marjolein’s work, and for the last years she has experimented with felt for their costume design while also creating final products for their shows. Marjolein has her own company,, and works from her studio with sewing and dyeing rooms. She has taught felting for thirteen years in North America, Europe, and Australia. Last years she won three awards for her costumes made for the WOW (world of wearable art) in New Zealand. To learn more, go to:
