The Crafter’s Way 163 – Fabulous Fibres

This week’s Messenger column - Fabulous FibresIMG_0274 The Textile Art Group is presenting a stunning exhibition, Nature as Designer, at the Graydon Gallery Newfarm until 19th December.

The exhibition showcases the work of 11 talented Textile Artists from across the South East with at least five of the Artists residing within the Moreton Bay Region. The diversity of Textile Artists includes creative embroiderers, fabric painters, wearable art designers, felt makers and art quilters. Each Artist brings their unique style to create an eclectic exhibition.helen's work 001

One of the Artists is Redcliffe resident, Helen Forrest. Helen began quilting 15 years ago and more recently began making art quilts. The images accompanying the column are some of Helen’s work that will be included in the Nature as Designer exhibition.
