Kim, who lives in Perth Hills first learned to felt about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. Ever since she was a young girl she loved the fibres of different fabrics which she reflects may have come from her mother and grandmother teaching her how to knit and crochet using many different wools and cotton.
Over the years she developed a love for natural fabrics and has mostly felted as a much-loved interest. Kim has also participated in many workshops with well-known Australian and International felters giving her a variety of skills as a felter. She is also a member of Feltwest and has been an advocate and presenter at Common Threads Woven Through Community since its inception in 2018
Her motto for felting is ‘From Fibre to Fabulous’… “To start with tiny and delicate fibres and watch them turn into a strong and durable piece of fabric or art work is amazing” says Kim.
We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Kim join us to host workshops as part of our Common Threads Woven Through Community exhibition.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a week-long community engagement project proudly brought to the Perth Hills and directly following the World Fashion Revolution week held in late April each year and happily leading into the Local Toodyay Fibre Festival of 2019.
This exhibition includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages. These events are designed for you to leave feeling deeply inspired to become part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
