Tafta’s Geelong FORUM 2013
September 29 – October 5, 2013
Enrolments for TAFTA’s Geelong FORUM 2013 are now open via the website . You do not have to be a member of TAFTA to apply to attend the FORUM which has been re-branded as a Textile Retreat. Two workshops have closed for the time being (Ilze Aviks and Ruth Hadlow) but it is always worthwhile asking about a waiting list as cancellations do occur. Workshop closest to filling at present: Dye-Print-Stitch with Hilary Peterson; and Jewellery with Anna Davern. There are also places available in Textile Souvenirs with Sue Dennis; Bojagi Meets Shibori with Philomena Hali; Structure and Skin with Pat Hickman; Felting Seductive Neck & Body Wraps with Jorie Johnson; Clothing Design and The Cloth that Makes It with Susan Lazear; and Creating Contrast – Going Wild with Wax and Dye with Els Van Baarle.
