Monthly Demonstration Meeting 10th March
Rae Woolnough – Textile Art

We are excited to welcome Rae Woolnough demonstrating Textile Art on Tuesday, 10th March, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio in Windsor.

Come along to see this very beautiful, interesting and unique medium being demonstrated.

Rae Woolnough is a Textile Artist who specialises in the medium of felt.

Rae’s love of art and textiles has been a life long interest, from sewing her first garment at eight years of age to designing and making her own wedding dress, there has always been a connection with textiles and design.

Rae discovered felting fifteen years ago and since then has experimented and researched felt making, exploring new and different techniques and textural directions.

She prefers working with natural products such as fine merino wool, alpaca and silk and is on a constant quest to find beautiful and unique yarns to use as embellishments in her artworks.

Rae has exhibited her work through solo and group exhibitions in galleries throughout Australia.   Her artworks are held in collections throughout Australia and Internationally.

 You can see more of Rae’s work on Facebook:

The rivalry between Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso is one of the most significant stories of modern art, and it is this story that the National Gallery is telling this summer in its major exhibition Matisse Picasso.

Drawn from some forty important international collections, Matisse Picasso shows how these two pioneers of modern art mined each other’s work to enhance their own and shared the need to confront the challenges set by the paintings of Paul Cézanne.
