Judy Newman, Craft Consultant at Expertise Events asks the craft community to consider; “What does ‘Iconic Australia’ mean to you? We are excited to see how this theme will capture the imaginations of textile lovers across Australia and New Zealand and how it will be interpreted in wearable art. It will make a stunning display!
“We will announce three winners at the FibreFest show, where a number of outfits will also be chosen to tour various craft events around Australia until November, 2015.”
FibreFest is an event which pushes creative boundaries, and the organisers believe the range, skill and diversity of talent this competition will attract makes a beautiful fit.
FibreFest will be held at Australian Technology Park, Sydney, May 1- 3, 2015. The Park is at Everleigh, near Redfern.
