Unleash your creativity at our 5-day residential textile and fibre arts events in Ballarat and Toowoomba. Fibre Arts Australia welcomes students from all over the world, providing access to renowned tutors and giving you the time, space and support you need to complete your masterpiece.
CANCELLATION DUE TO COVID-19
In talks this morning with Ballarat Grammar School and Downlands College Toowoomba, the venues have asked that we cancel our bookings at the schools due to the number of students booked to attend and the speed of the spreading COVID19 virus.
We are hugely saddened by the need to do this but feel alarmed about how things are unfolding and progressing across the world.
While disappointed, Nonie and I unite that acting responsibly is of utmost importance at this time.
Priority is to minimise unnecessary travel and therefore reduce any risk to this region, especially all members of the Ballarat Grammar community and any conference attendees who may fall into the vulnerable cohort for this virus.
Fibre Arts will continue to monitor the advice of health authorities in planning for the Winter conference in July and thank all staff at Ballarat Grammar for their continued support.
Currently Nonie and I are uneasy, being the persons responsible for asking people to gather in groups.
We also have concerns about the possibility of mandatory quarantine and people not being able to return home.
At this stage, we are compelled to cancel all the workshops for April.
We apologise from the bottom of our hearts as we know how much you have been looking forward to the amazing week, as have we!
Again our most sincere apologies for this unprecedented action and our kindest regards. Glenys and Nonie
