Velvet Plume, Winnipeg, MB: Fibre

Venue Section: Skylight Gallery/3rd Floor

We have extended our spin of fibre art from clothing to handcrafted rope vessels. We stitch rope on the sewing machine, just as a potter throws clay on a wheel. The rope is dyed in a bath of tea and roots, accented with colour through the use of thread. Every vessel is one-of-a-kind echoing colours and hues fond in nature, and then sewn into a functional sculpture for everyday living.
