Today my guest is Vicki Cornish, a Fibre Artist and teacher from Newcastle, New South Wales. Vicki creates contemporary textiles with ancient tools and techniques. Her craft practice focuses on hand spinning, weaving and stitching using natural fibres and low impact methods of processing and dyeing. Vicki also has a particular interest in historical tools and techniques, including those used by Vikings over a thousand years ago. In this episode we explore Vicki's studies in Visual Arts, Applied Fashion Design and Technology. We also find out more about a range of fibre craft practices and techniques used by Vicki, in her art own art practice, as well as participants in hands-on workshops. Vicki also shares her enthusiasm for the simple, yet profound human benefits of gentle focus and patience associated with the slow craft movement.
