Fibres West 2008 is the 6th regional forum to be held in Western Australia under the auspices of the Australian Forum for Textile Arts Ltd (TAFTA). It is taking place from the 5th -11th of October in Bunbury. A fully residential program is offered over the 5 days providing participants with opportunities for learning and the exchange of ideas with other textile craftspeople.
The list of classes available and the standard of the tutors is incredible, tutors come from all over including India, USA and each state in Australia is represented. Yes, yours truly will be tutoring a class on the delights of weaving with texture. I am looking forward to it immensely.
