Vines Vistas Vibes

 Painting by Joy and contemporary basketry by Lyn.

Lyn uses natural fibres in her handwoven often sculptural basketry pieces for which she collects materials from the bush and these represent her connection to her surroundings.

“The last two years has seen my Art develop to include Contemporary basketry for which I have become passionate.

With the mention of basketry many think of the woven traditional baskets, however my creations extend to include unusual shaped vessels, sculptural pieces and of course baskets that are unique and one of a kind.

The use of plants and other natural fibres are important in my weaving process and with the recent discovery of hemp fibre and linen I am able to include bright colours into vessels which I call “ Weed pods”, (or as many refer to them as “ squashy ones” because these pods are very tactile).

The embellishment is the final stage using beads and buttons etc. and is the fun part, although, I must admit it’s all fun…”

Lyn will be working in the Gallery during the exhibitions and conducting a two day workshop, also in the Gallery on 13th and 14th May. These workshops are almost fully booked however you are welcome to coem along and observe if you are interested to learn more.
