Fibreartistry, Winnipeg, MB: Fibre

Venue Section: Penthouse Level/4th Floor

I grew up on a biodynamic farm in Germany where my grandmother introduced me to all things fibre. My instant love affair with natural materials was continued throughout adult life and finally became the focal point of my work in 2006. Fibreartistry narrows down the fibre world to felting applications with a focus on nuno felt, combining wool with silk. I am also fascinated by the vast variety of fleeces and incorporate raw locks. I “paint” with wool and am known to exclaim: “I’m so not done with sheep wool!”
