Braidwood Regional Arts Group (BRAG) Annual Members' Exhibition and Sale

Every year, over the Easter Long Weekend, Braidwood hosts this event which gives the public an opportunity to view new works by both well known and emerging local artists.

The Exhibition will be officially opened by local author, Jackie French on Thursday 1st April at 6.00pm and will close on Monday, 4th April. It will be held at the National Theatre in Wallace Street, Braidwood.

My entry this year is "X and Y", a his and hers scarf set in hand felted merino wool with hand dyed silk chiffon, crinkle silk chiffon and recycled silk shirting.

We hope to see you there.

The completed Family Heirloom

The invitation to the 2010 Canberra Region Feltmakers exhibition Rapt in Felt, from May 26th to May 30th, contains small detail images of work by Jesusa Lockwood, Lynne Sanders, Jennie Curtis, Lis Mertens and others.

The Fashion Parades on Friday and Saturday of the exhibition showcase the wearable quality of contemporary felt and are well worth the effort.

See you there!

The Show is over.

I have been awarded the 2010 Champion in the Professional Class at the Royal Canberra Show, with Firsts in the Felted Item for the Home and Head Categories, a second in the Felted item using recycled materials and a Third for the Felted Item for the Body.
The display of over 90 items was impressive and we had fun demonstrating how felt is made to the many interested show goers.
On my way to the Craft Pavilion, I had a laugh watching the Flyball Relays for teams of dogs including Blue Heelers, Labradors, Poodles and Jack Russells, amongst others. Good fun!
