BALLARAT – AUTUMN
1st April to 7th April 2020View Event
Eszter Bornemisza is a fiber artist living in Budapest, Hungary working with recycled paper, textiles and other found soft materials. The basic process of her creation is machine stitching, with additional elements of printing dyeing and painting. After having made art quilts for more than ten years, her interest has turned to creating transparent wall-hangings, objects and installations using ripped, overprinted newspaper.
Her work has been widely exhibited in solo and juried shows and won several prizes. She is a member and exhibits with the 62Group and Quilt Art Group and is a renown teacher as well.
During the workshop we will make artist books of small items what students will bring with them. They can be all kind of collected things that are not too heavy and fit into a small box. Starting with a shoe box several ways of arranging and fixing items will be considered along with covering the box with related surface design elements. There will be extensive discussions about the complex process of how we think about the items we place in the book, how we can make it ‘readable’ for the viewer and how to translate these ideas into the language of fiber art. Techniques are mainly gluing and basic hand stitching.
