Fibre Arts Ballarat 2015

During April I had the fortunate experience to attend the Ballarat Fibre Arts School for 5 days. It truly was one of the most inspiring weeks working with Canadian Textile Artist Susan Purney Mark. In her class, we explored colour dying and design. Using soya wax relief we also experimented with hand painting, silk screens and block printing. The course was rich in technique/s and we produced several pieces per day.
There was a great choice of workshops to attend at this years Fibre Arts Ballarat, with exceptionally talented tutors from Australia and all over the world attending the week. The culmination of the participants work was exhibited on the Friday evening and it was amazing. You would have thought that you were entering a professional studio with the standard of work on display which included basket weaving, paper making, dyeing and colour design, exquisite fibre embroidery and mixed media canvas work, sculpture and weaving. I highly recommend Fibre Arts Australia and thank the organisers of the Ballarat event for the opportunity to attend. Cxx
