Last night we had the pleasure of attending the opening of the inaugural Beechworth Fabric and Fibre Award. The Old School House was full of textiles and excited people. The display of textiles was fantastic with a huge variety of techniques, colour and ideas. I will have to return to have a closer look. Claudia Chan Shaw was the judge of the 102 entries with 4 prizes awarded. She had an unenviable job choosing winners from such distinctive and beautiful artworks.
I had a small piece entered made from Eco dyed cotton fabric with a pieced organza overlay. The piecing had been done by using Korean Kekki seams.
