I am home with the flu, not the piggy variety I hope. But then, I have so many students away with it I don't like my chances.
Checking on what is on in the way of fibre related exhibitions at the moment, it looks as though this weekend is going to be a busy one. (As long as this flu relents a little.)
Floating Life: Contemporary Aboriginal Fibre Art is an exhibition I don't want to miss, even if I do have the flu. http://qag.qld.gov.au/exhibitions/coming_soon/floating_life
There are also some interesting exhibitions on at the City Hall Museum.
Talking Tapa looks at the wonderful work of the women of the Pacific islands. I have seen bits and pieces but this exhibition seems to cover a lot more. I can see some of these works lending themselves to adaption for patchwork.There are also some wonderful resources on-line for teachers.
The other exhibition at this location is 'In Fashion: Dressing up Brisbane'. Clothing for special occasions from private collections and Fashion Designers.
I don't know how I would use this but I know of a couple of engineers who would drool. It's how to build a book scanner.
