Fibre Design Book

In 2010 a team of dedicated Textile and Fibre lovers ( Jayne Stacey, Dragon Design and TAFTA) worked to put together a full colour book on Fibre and Textile art in Australia and New Zealand.   Unfortunately after all their hard work, they did not receive enough submissions with quality photography to publish the intented book.  I have to admit my heart was broken a little, as I was fortunate enough to be one of the chosen artists. 

As an honour and appreciation to the chosen artists  the magazine Textile Fibre Forum will be publishing all the selected artists in their next few issues.  Starting with Issue 1 no 101, 2011.  My work appears in this issue.

If you are a textile and fibre lover I would encourage you to get a subscription to the magazine as it showcases some very talented and interesting artists and keeps you up to date with textile news in Australia and overseas. 

You can see all the chosen artists for the Fibre Design Book on TAFTA's website.  While you are there have a look at the events pages and there maybe an exhibition or workshop which may tempt you over the summer.
