Inge Evers is an artist and therapist working with fibres, felt and paper-making. The images of her work are from the book Filz, published by Arnoldsche. The words Inge has written about her mother have a particular resonance. 'Mammas is about the feelings I have knowing that I am going to lose my mother who suffers from a dementia syndrome. I have felted favourite scarves she used to wear. By felting them I feel I honour all these old people we love and who we have to let go.'
