After the intensive 5 day workshop at the Geelong Forum Textile Retreat, we have all kept in touch and it is wonderful to see the work and further explorations coming from the group. We are acting as a cheer squad for each other- I think there needs to be more of this type of encouragement and support. Above- a journal cover made by Anne from Indian cotton fabric, hand dyed, painted fusible and hand made cord.
Lucy has been putting the techniques we covered to good use in her own original designs above and below. You can see more of her work on her blog.
Liz is a felter and has great textured pieces incorporating fabrics from the week. It is very exciting to see the results of her work.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
