WBEG Monthly Meeting

Thursday 13 October 7.00pm - 9.00pm

AGM and
Yvonne Brown - Threads of Life
With my background in art and my strong interest in art history, particularly the medieval, together with a passion for fabrics and threads, I am constantly exploring ways to use textiles as an artistic medium in an exciting and experimental way to obtain images that have a tactile and, at times, a three dimensional surface, with a richness and depth not often possible by more conventional means. My inspiration is found in the natural world and from art historical sources.
