We formed as a group a few years ago, initially as a critque group to push and encourage each other in our artisic pursuits and we've evolved from there, it's a nice feeling to feature together in an article in the current issue of Down Under Textiles.
There are six of us in the group, Merody Buglar, Kathryn Iliff, Jane Rundle, Kate Osko, Suzanne Marshall & Myself and we usually meet once a month. There's always lots of show n tell, sharing of projects or techniques and we often engage in mini-workshops trying out various techniques we've seen in magaizines and / or books.
We've also worked on joint projects such decorating a tree for the Jumpers n Jazz festival last year, enjoying day trips to the country, working with Tricia Smout as part of her residency at the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens to name just a few. I've featured a few of our projects here on my blog and bundled them together in a link, pop across and have a look. The current issue of Down Under Textiles is filled with lots of creative inspirations including an article on fellow artist and friend Chris Jones featuring her FloodArt Postcards.
