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. 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 Gordon join us to host workshops in the Perth Hills as part of our Common Threads Project.
Common Threads – Woven through Community is a month long community engagement project proudly brought to you directly following the World Fashion Revolution week held in late April each year. 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 brand new impulse of considerable change.
