Local sustainability talks and Garden Wedding dress update

 Local followers of my blog may be interested to know I've been invited back by the Upper Hunter Shire Council to give another talk for World Sustainability Day, as I did last year too. I'll be talking about why I base my art practise on principles of environmental sustainability, especially in regard to upcycling clothes and textiles. The talk will last about 10-15 minutes then I'll show and discuss some my latest upcycled fabrics and clothing and answer any questions people want to ask me. 

It would be wonderful to meet any of you in person if you were close enough to come along.

This picture of the promo poster advertises the other speakers and what their specific topic will cover. Our first event is at Murrurundi Library on Monday June 5th next week. Then we will bring the discussion to other public libraries of these other Hunter Valley towns on additional dates -

Wednesday 7 June:      Scone and Aberdeen

Wednesday 21 June:   Merriwa and Cassilis.

Meantime....back to labouring on the farm...I did a lot of work yesterday on the garment I'm making for  the Australian Wearable Art Festival - despite Lulus best efforts to peck everything apart!

Its gotten to the stage where I was able to pin it to one of my dress forms with stiffening inserted at the hemline to make the front, back and sides stand out rigidly so that the sculptural form I had visualised in the original concept is getting closer to being realised.
