Loose Threads, exhibition by Ballarat Fibre and Textile Network

Access info

View details

‘Loose Threads’ is a free exhibition of many forms of art produced by the talented members of the Ballarat Fibre and Textile Network.

Members often take their inspiration from Nature and the world around you, sometimes literally, using leaves and other natural resources to create wonderful Eco printed material, which can also progress into producing bags, scarves etc. Fleeces can be spun into fibre, wet or dry felted and otherwise manipulated, to be used to create beautiful objects, both useful and purely decorative.

Others are inspired by Nature itself to create landscapes, animals and birds, either realistically or in a whimsical manner. Found objects create another source for their inspirational pieces, often adding distressed and dyed fabrics, lace and other ephemera.

Some of the art is available to be purchased and taken away 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.
