Next Meeting is on Friday 28 August

Next meeting day on Friday 28 August  at 9.30 am at St Luke’s Anglican Church Hall, Princess Street Berry  

and our Guest is Fiona Hammond.

Fiona describes herself  “as a mixed-media artist whose love of beads, textiles and fibre has led to an eclectic array of wearable and non-wearable pieces since 1999 – everything from contemporary quilts to jewellery and sculptural forms.

Her main modalities are beadwork, quilting, kumihimo braiding and coiled basketry. She is well-known for her love of vibrant colour and a somewhat quirky aesthetic.   

Fiona’s quilts and beadwork pieces have been seen in Australian quilting and beading  magazines, as well as various exhibitions. She has received many awards and prizes for her  work over the years.

Fiona is an enthusiastic teacher in the field of creative arts and crafts, and loves to share her knowledge and skills with her students.

You can see more of Fiona’s work on her website gallery pages, and workshop information …..

This is a meeting not  to miss!!

Look forward to seeing you  …..
