Heidi Hunter, Winnipeg, MB: Fibre
Venue Section: Mezzanine Level/2nd Floor
I live to dye. My work is driven by colour and texture, and I constantly find myself invigorated by my love/hate relationship with the creative process. All things fibre stir my heart. I delight in the alchemy of colouring cloth and am always astounded by the results of adding or removing colour, then layering stamped or screened patterns to create visually complex cloth. Most recently I’ve created “Sheep Chic”–accessories where fine merino wool fibres are felted to hand-dyed silk.
