Get creative with every fibre of your being

3 June, 2014

Old Bus Depot Markets, Kingston - Sunday, 14 July 2013 - 10.18AMSo Creative Fibre is coming up next month, 13 July to be exact. It’s probably one of our most popular theme days of the year as the day always showcases some of the Canberra region’s most talented fibre and textile artists. This is the tenth year for Creative Fibre and it’s always such a great opportunity for the community to engage with the region’s fibre and textile artists – people who design, print on fabric, weave, make baskets, knit and hand dye fabric.

New this year is Wendy Voon Knits. This contemporary knitwear label’s designs have been described as sculptural and architectural. Wendy will have her range of women’s knitwear available including scarves, jumpers and wraps.

And for something completely different, you can browse and buy indigenous fibre arts from remote communities in central Australia with works from On the Stone. On the Stone supports the work of remote indigenous art centres and will have a range of Tjanpi Weaver’s baskets and woven creature sculptures for sale at Creative Fibre. Come and get creative with us on Sunday 13 July – see you there!
