Fibre Spectrum Co-Operative
March 2017 Exhibition
Itajime Shibori - The Art of Fold and Clamp
Resisting silks and cottons to create geometric patterns. Recent works by Susanne Williamson, fabric artist.
"I have been dyeing and sewing fabrics for over 35 years.
I use specially formulated silk and cotton dyes, which I steam into the fabric, which makes the colours vibrant and permanent.
Influenced by my environment, each day presents itself as a creative adventure to be explored.
I have studied Fashion and Design at NMIT, and have attended numerous dyeing workshops.
Also, I have been a regular stall holder at the Nelson Saturday Market for the last 22 years. Where I sell a range of hand-dyed scarves, visors and many other gift items.
Please feel free to take one of my business cards. You are welcome to leave a comment about this exhibition on my Facebook page or my website www.uniquethreads.co.nz ".
