Sorry did not post last night - had a awful migrane - wonder if it was the posting or rather the excitement in becoming a new blogger
I have been thinking about what I will put on the blog and it will be all things Textiles
For those that do not know me I am extremely passionate about Textiles and have been all my life. It has been a consuming passion. I have taught Textiles for at least all my teaching career of 40 years and have studied over that same perios just completing my Masters in Asian Education with a focus on Art and the History of India. Several trips to the subcontinent - India has had a great impact on my Arts Practice and increased my knowledge of the history of Textiles. So I will share some of that with you in the future posts.
I would also like to share what my students at MArden Senior College are doing too - this is an Adult Campus so my student's ages are between 16 and 70 - rather like Tertiary study. They are studying in Nationally acredited Certificates specialising in Creative Textiles - covering dyeing, printing, stitching, drawing, painting, photoimaging etc............
