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.

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:
