Fibre Arts New Zealand – Whanganui

After some exciting travels in New Zealand it was time to teach at Whanganui at Easter time. They were a friendly, lively bunch of people and once again I worked with a very hard working and imaginative group. We had plenty of time to discuss and share ideas which was a bonus.

It was an opportunity to develop ideas for future work – work in progress.

The workshop was based on the same theme as Ballarat – Constructing a fabric: making connections – but our ideas developed in entirely different ways.

Creating a series:
