A VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE

It is with great sadness that Glenys and Nonie have taken the difficult decision to cancel

ALL Fibre Arts Australia Ballarat and Toowoomba 2020 events

owing to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We have just heard that our venues will not be available to us as they too need to comply with the safe distancing regulations.

It is a decision that was very hard but plainly necessary, responsible and required given what we all face together at this moment.

Our thoughts rush to those who make Fibre Arts Australia events what it is, year after year, and what it will return to be.

If you have already enrolled in any FIBRE ARTS 2020 WORKSHOP, it will now be valid for any future FIBRE ARTS event .

As Nonie and I have just cancelled all of the evnts for 2020, we would like to let you know of a plan that we have been hatching….

All of the tutors that were to teach at the September event have now been moved to the April 2021 event…

This will be an all Australian tutor event to be held at Ballarat Grammar.

ALL INTERNATIONAL TUTORS FOR 2021 HAVE NOW BEEN MOVED TO 2022,

EXCEPT FOR THE SEPTEMBER 2021 WHEN WE HOPE WE MAY BE ABLE TO HAVE A FEW COME IN FOR THAT EVENT.

We will do a fresh promotion and start a party happening at the school in April 2021!

Still the same event format… learning, fun and games and just being together, will be the whole point of this event!!

We do hope that that you are able to develop something that makes your heart sing…

or even a piece for the Art Textile Biennale 2020? Now that is really something to think about!!

Take great care, practice social distancing and stay at home… for as long as it takes!

Fond regards from a safe distance..
Glenys, Nonie and the Fibre Arts team.

THE TWO WHO ARE FIBRE ARTS AUSTRALIA

Glenys & Nonie

Sharing a love for textile art, travel and philanthropy, Glenys and Nonie are both artists in their own right and have been friends for over 30 years.

Joining forces as business partners in 2016, the pair now search the globe for the best textile and fibre artists to join their five-day textile art events as tutors.

Glenys and Nonie are focused on creating unforgettable experiences and giving Fibre Arts event attendees the space, time and motivation they need to focus on their artistic endeavours.

ARTISTS LOVE FIBRE ARTS AUSTRALIA!

Many of our students return time and time again to indulge their passion in what some describe as a ‘creative retreat’. Thousands of students and hundreds of tutors have attended over the years. Here’s what some of them have to say:
