The Deeper Voice of Textilesis a community based project offering workers of the Hunter Region with a new means of creative expression through fibre art.
The Deeper Voice of Textiles project is the brain-child of Timeless Textiles curator, textile artist and gallery owner Anne Kempton and is a vehicle for local Newcastle businesses to work collaboratively in a uniquely creative way.
Approximately twenty local businesses, primarily employing men, have been busy making alongside Tim Johnson, a highly-regarded UK-based artist and basketmaker and local artist Graham Wilson. Creating art works using their skills, the tools of their trade and applying fibre art techniques the men have created a challenging body of work exploring the materials, traditions and history of textiles from their own unique perspective.
