One of the things I value most within the Fibre Arts Australia Tribe is humility.
It could be a natural consequence of working with artisans – as we've all had to come to terms with the fact that there are an amazing number of talented artists in the room.
But humility is about more than keeping your ego in check.
Understanding that we can't do it all on our own opens us up to seeking help. And when we ask for help and get it, great things happen.
In 2022 I've been bowled over by the generous support of so many people who see the value of learning face to face, and who care enough to help provide it to the widest possible audience.
Thanks to every artist who stayed up late, got up early or skipped something else important to come to a Fibre Arts event . Thanks to our tribe who are curious enough to see other people’s places within Studio Spaces and who care about the India Project and other disasters that Fibre Arts supports when called upon.
Thanks to our tutors who work so hard to make a positive difference.
Thanks to the Gold Team who work hard at the event and behind the scenes to steer this fabulous ship.
Thanks to the team at Ballarat Grammar for their unwavering support throughout the year.
Finally, a special thanks to you, who became students again as we try to get back on an even keel and the thousands more who supported us throughout the year. The support of subscribers like you is essential to everything Fibre Arts does.
I hope you have a merry Christmas and joyous holiday full of creative experiences and a generous dose of humility.
