Palm House Exhibition 2018 - The Space IN Between - Invitation
ATASDA's biennial Palm House exhibition display's members' skills while responding to a theme. This year the theme is 'The Space IN Between' and is an opportunity for members to share their knowledge and encourage others to become 'textile lovers' and to celebrate their creativity.
The artworks within the exhibition showcase a diversity within the textile and fibre art world. These include dyeing, printing, weaving, felting, machine and hand embroidery, millinery, surface embellishment, three-dimensional sculptural forms, basketry, bookbinding techniques, shibori, quilting, knitting and more.
The exhibition showcases the talents and skills of our members. Works appeal to one's sense of adventure, love of traditional fibre art skills and the textile 'unknown', challenging and taking the opportunity to pass on traditional fibre art skills and inspire future generations of textile and fibre artists.
Accompanying the exhibition is a shop of member works. High quality original textile and fibre wearables and decorative items are available for sale.
The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 4pm from Tuesday 22 May until Friday 1 June 2018 (when it closes at 2pm) in The Palm House at the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney.
Please join us for the official opening on Saturday 26 May 2018 at 2pm with Guest Speaker and Textile Artist Meredith Woolnough.
