|I believe learning should be a lifelong undertaking;
-having the opportunity to visit other cultures and learn of little of their ways leads to a
greater understanding of our place in the world.
-artistically speaking…looking at art, architecture, design and everything in between
and having the chance to discuss it with like minded people increases our ability to
‘see’ what’s there and learn form it. This leads to a greater appreciation of textiles,
art and culture [and life in general!] and can help us grow in our own creative
-the chance to experience workshops expands our own repertoire of skills, we
develop new understandings and insight to our own work.
I have found through some of the exchanges I have been lucky enough to have with
other artists and artisans, many new ideas for my own work even when what I was
learning did not have a direct relationship to the way I produce work.
-I hope these experiences have a similar effect for you....best wishes Fiona
