Barb Hunt will lead a three-session, three-week mini-mentorship for women artists. Barb will show images of a very diverse range of current fibre/textile practices, as well as provide a historical/cultural/theoretical background.
Various fibre/textile practices will be introduced, with a focus on contemporary textile art and “craftivism”.
This will be an opportunity to create new work as well as participate in group work, critiques, discussions and textile storytelling.
Barb Hunt studied art at the University of Manitoba and completed an MFA at Concordia University. Her current work concerns the devastation of war: she knits antipersonnel land mines and creates installations using camouflage from worn army uniforms. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
