I've been invited to take part in 'Gifted', Sunday November 13th, It will be an opportunity to purchase gorgeous, handcrafted gifts (or treat yourself) from some of WA's textile artists. I'll have my thermofax screens with some new designs, printed/dyed fabrics, scarves, covered journals etc. Hope to see you there!
Embellish Magazine ran an art cloth swap at the Brisbane Textile Art Festival this year. I'm a little late writing about this but above is a scan of the first page of the article in the lastest issue (Vol 2 Issue 7) My cloth, Corrosion, is at the bottom of the page. I was lucky enough to receive Natural Treasures by Marie-Therese Wisniowski as my swap piece, which I love - it's the piece with rich geens and gold, 3rd row down. More info on her blog.
I had a wonderful, very busy week at Fibres West, with my 11 fabulous students. I'll post some pics of their work next post.
They worked very hard and acheived much. It was a great experience all round - catching up with people, seeing what the other classes were doing, as well as the lecture programme and evening activities.
Unfortunately while I was away, my Mum had to go into respite care - she was in hospital when I left but it was felt that she wasn't well enought to cope at home. Hoping to get services in place soon so she can go home again and also dealing with clearing out my Uncle's property before selling it, things are pretty stressful at present. I may not post as often for a while.
The doileys are from a series I did while a student at Curtin University - more of my old slides now converted to digital format so I can re-visit them.
