Geelong Fibre Forum is coming!!

The Geelong Fibre Forum is coming up soon. Each year since I discovered it in 2002 I dream about going and each year for one reason or another I can't. This year is no different and again I am envious of all of the lucky people who are able to attend.

I am compensated however by going to the open day on Saturday - 27th September. This day is in my diary and the few dollars that I can spare are sitting eagerly sitting in my bank account itching to be spent.

The Open day is 3 hours (9-12) of madness shared with other fiendish textile lovers where we can browse (read drool) over the work that those lucky attendees have created with their fabulous tutors, viewing the exhibitions and perusing (I mean spending up big) at the Selling Bizaar (the market where forum attendees can sell their wares) and the Traders Hall (everything textile and more). So much to see and so little time.

This year I've discovered that the public (THAT'S ME!!!!) are welcome all week between 8.00am and 5.30pm to view the exhibitions and installations and visit the traders. We can also attend the nightly talks as well - I'm going to have to see if I can get my hands on a schedule for these to see if there are any that I might be interested in!

So what's on (other than the Traders and Selling Bizaar)?...

  • After India - "an exhibition curated by Dana McCown of works made by people who toured with her and Barbara Schey in 2006 to the Natuarl Dye Symposiu, in India"
  • Time Traveller - Joy Smith exhibits woven tapestries as well as demonstrating tapestry weaving
  • Telia Rumal - "Telia Rumal" is an ikat technique that requires 17 days of repeated soaking and drying for the special alizarin dye process to work, the tying and dyeing of the yarn begins and then the weaving"
  • Steve Innes: Objects of Desire - "unique and intricate wearables"


Also on in Geelong during the Forum is the Wool Quitl Prize exhibition - Expressions 2008. This exhbition is on at the National Wool Museum, Geelong from 13 September 2008 to 1 February 2009.

Are any of the "locals" going? Perhaps we could meet up?...
