We’re dye­ing to see you

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS - By Michael Mat­tingly

THE lat­est Town Hall ex­hi­bi­tion, Dye­ing to Stitch, fea­tures pieces from the lo­cal con­tem­po­rary tex­tile art group, Fibre and Thread.

Ju­dith Roberts, who runs the group, saw an op­por­tu­nity when a space in the Town Hall opened up.

“I saw a bit of a gap and we had a chat at one of our group meet­ings and pretty much came to the con­clu­sion, right, let’s do this,” she said.

So the 15-mem­ber group got to work – dye­ing, stitch­ing, cre­at­ing and thread­ing.

“It was a lit­tle bit nerver­ack­ing as we came to­wards dead­line, but ev­ery­one in the group came up with at least one or more pieces for the dis­play.”

The group made it on time, and came up with some­thing Ju­dith said they should be very proud of.

“It is packed to the brim with pieces,” she said.

“We dye with a lot of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, there is a lot of blue that comes from dye­ing with indigo and there is also a lovely green that comes from dye­ing with eu­ca­lyp­tus.

“There are even gar­ments and all sorts of dif­fer­ent things so I en­cour­age peo­ple to come on down, they will not be dis­ap­pointed.

“The whole ex­hi­bi­tion is very vi­brant and al­most leaps off the wall at you when you walk in.”

Dye­ing to Stitch opened on Au­gust 7 and will run at the Town Hall un­til Septem­ber 29.
