Quote ” In the city, a multiplicity of threads caused a whirling confusion on the loom, but here (in the country) the simple pattern and the slow weaving made the purpose more discernible” – Elizabeth Gouge
The Margie and Bert Design Studio, is a creative space and working studio, established by Victorian based textile artist Christine Lethlean. With a love of quality fabrics and a flair for working with colour, textures and fibres her artistic expression is followed by those who appreciate individual and unique style. Her work is a distinctive mix of her own ideas and inspiration drawn from environs and themes both locally and from around the globe.
Christine’s project and commissioned work is personally designed and handcrafted and offered at an accessible price range without compromising the many hours work that go into each piece. She is committed to sustainable practice where possible, shopping locally for resources and supporting charities when purchasing for up-cycled and re-purposed ideas.
The working studio concept has rapidly evolved and is now an inspiring and nurturing rural work space overlooking the historic village of Clunes, Victoria, for textile artists and stitching enthusiasts to come together. Christine teaches and facilitates stitching, textile art and mixed media workshops, and these are available by arrangement along with a select range of patterns, kits and relevant resources.
