MEMORY AND COMMEMORATION

 

See the latest creations by West Australian Fibre and Textile Association (WAFTA) members at the fair. Their latest challenge, Memory and Commemoration, conjured many ideas for textile art pieces, not just of the war but of events personal to each textile artist.

 

 

About 60 works will be on display, showing a diverse range of techniques and processes, including hand stitching, embroidery, print processes, encaustic, natural dyes, photo transfer, sun dyes, collage, machine stitching, appliqué, crochet, needle weaving, beading, cyanotype, patchwork, shibori, inkjet printing and more.

 

 

Fibres used include everything from paper, cotton, silk, plant fibre, found objects, wool, recycled fabrics and hessian. This exhibition is a must see for all people interested in textiles.

WAFTA
