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. 

Artist Statement:

"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 ".
