Want to take part in a fibre art blog tour?

3 05 2011

I am going to.  Kathy York, a fabulous textile artist in the US has gathered some friends and asked them to create a three dimensional fibre house to be part of a textile village.  It looks amazing.  Then one day each, they will reveal (and hopefully discuss) each house.  The link for Kathy’s blog outlines the inception of the idea and can be found here.

The first house went up mid day our time yesterday and is amazing.  Each house must be made of fabric.

If these hyperlinks don’t work, you can get them from Kathy’s site directly.  This looks to be a very inspirational and different ‘patchwork’ experience.  Hopefully it will encourage us all to stretch our boundaries.

Thank you for this information. I certainly will be following. Had a look at the first one and yes, it is amazing. Love the 3D figures.

You’ve hooked me as well. I had a look at the house with little women doing domestic things and was stunned. So beautiful, the colours, the shapes. Very clever. I noticed in the latest Cloth, Paper, Scissors that there is a house competition as well.
