Our next online webinar is with Kate Ward at 3 pm EDT on April 17, 2021. Join her to learn several fun and easy ways to create fabrics at home using your stash. Solar dying, mark making with rust and how to print patterns using objects found around the house are just a few of the techniques that she will demonstrate, leaving you with lots of ideas for how you might include them in your latest piece or use them as the perfect starting point for a slow stitching project.
Kate is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist working in textiles, ceramics, jewelry, video and installation. Based in Truro, NS, her work is often minimalist, focusing on form, colour and the interplay of contrasts. Her practice is inspired by the ephemeral, the metaphysical, the symbolic and the relationship between art, ritual and culture.
Born in Australia, she moved to Nova Scotia after completing her Masters in Visual Art at NSCAD, Canada in 2016. Kate has studied textiles at the Australian National University, ceramics in Japan and Australia and she won an award to study jewelry in Italy. She has worked in the arts in both the private and public sectors and also has her Masters in Arts Management and Policy from London University, UK. Her work has been selected for national and international exhibitions and won the Fibreart International Guild’s Outstanding Work by an Emerging Artist award; it is in public and private collections world wide.
