Hi everyone – thank you Amorette and MAP Academy for making this course available and for generously sharing these precious resources. I am an artist living in Perth Western Australia. Using sustainably sourced and locally foraged plant fibres and dyes such as raffia, sea grass, eucalyptus and earth pigments, I create natural fibre vessels and woven sculptures which are detailed. My interests include traditional Sicilian baskets ‘coffa’ and ‘panaru’ which were used to collect fruit from my family’s orchards. The act of making and its potential for (re)connection to heritage, culture and storytelling is an emerging theme in my work.
