“Loose Threads”

Ballarat Fibre & Textile Network is displaying some of their members outstanding work. This exhibition gives the community a view to new styles of textile art, some using materials or sources that are not in the usual scope of fabrication. Members often use nature as inspiration, some use it create landscapes, birds, flowers and people either literally or their own interpretation. Nature can also be used as a dyeing or printing agent which can be used to promote Eco printed material. This material can produce wonderful scarves, bags and clothing. Fleece can be dyed, spun, felted and manipulated into clothing or decorations. Using gathered and reusing articles can be another way of adding to various techniques and pieces. You can remember your visit to our exhibition by buying a piece of original artwork and taking it with you on the day.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
