A new approach
I have been taking class with Mary Hettmansperger, multi-media fibre artist, here in New Zealand at Textile Fibre Forum Aotearoa. I was intrigued at what such a prestigious tutor could add to my current skill set - which is mostly fibre and paper based.
I was thrilled to find myself cutting and shaping, colouring and stitching into copper and finding myself with new doll shapes and ideas to explore.
I can see myself taking this much further as I loved using such a strange but lovely material and find the chance to use copper with my other fibre arts really exciting.
