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.
A VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE
It is with great sadness that Glenys and Nonie have taken the difficult decision to cancel both
Fibre Art Australia Ballarat and Toowoomba Winter 2020
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.
For 13 or more years, Fibre Arts Australia has championed the power of textile events to educate, entertain and inspire artists – especially during challenging times – so the unprecedented move to cancel the Winter 2020 events, has not been taken lightly.
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.
Fibre Arts Australia is committed to the longevity and sustainability of the events and will continue to provide compelling and community-building experiences for our audience into the future.
If you have already enrolled to a Ballarat Winter 2020 class, it will now be valid for any future Ballarat event .
As Nonie and I have just cancel the Winter School, we would like to let you know of a plan that we have been hatching….
We feel that by September all the Australian borders will be open and travel will more than likely be able to happen… if that is the case, what we would like to do is an
…. All Australian Tutor event to be held at Ballarat Grammar 21 – 27 September 2020…..
We will do a fresh promotion and start a party happening at the school in September!
Still the same event format… learning, fun and games and just being together, will be the whole point of this event!!
Unfortunately our events in Toowoomba Winter and Spring 2020 must be cancelled as well.
Our commitment to events in Qld must now be on hold as we see how the textile communities fair during this unprecedented and unknown times.
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.
