The above photos are of baskets I’ve recently entered into Frost Fest. A local art show profiling artists in Central West NSW. There are a total of four baskets in this series titled ‘Hot & Cold’. The exhibition called for works based on the theme fire and ice. The show is open until 12 August 2012 – if you’re in the area check it out!
There are a whole heap of art events on in Orange this fortnight as part of Frost Fest. We are very lucky to be having Harriet Goodall visit Orange to host a basketry workshop. I’m locked in to attend on Friday and am very excited about learning new techniques off another great basketmaker. I’ve been wanting to attend one of Harriet’s workshops for a long time but the timings had never worked. I will take loads of pics to share them with you next week!
