In conjuction with Margaret River Region Open Studios 2022 we welcome Barbara Weeks to the Courtroom at ArtGeo Barbara Weeks is a Textile Artist and will have her pop up studio in the Courthouse, she will have both 2D and 3D Works on display and she will be demonstrating her artistic practice during the open studio weeks. "I create colour and texture in surface design through the wet felting process. Laminating wool to silk which demands that I engage intimately with the qualities in these natural fibres. Working directly with my hands is liberating, exciting, risky and yet calming, serendipitous. The cloth created changes and shrinks, suggesting further development with layering and stitch.. I have recently settled in Geographe bay, Busselton, WA. Exploring the South West the dramatic coastlines, deserted beaches, stunning rock formations and the joyful birdsong and the lush beauty underfoot and in the forests are a balm to my creative soul; investigating, researching, experimenting. Camping trips to the Wheatbelt and Kalbarri have given a new enriching response." Barbara is an engaging and positive artist and a visit to her studio is a must!
