In 1982, the year Queensland Spinners Weavers & Dyers moved into its permanent home, the group members created a collaborative work titled “Temple Bells” for the National Art Textile Exhibition, held in St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane.
Thirty-two years later (and now known as Queensland Spinners Weavers & Fibre Artists) the group is still achieving its goals of bringing people together to share textile techniques and skills. Elements of the original “Temple Bells” work were being re-used, and added to by current members to create a new work: ”Ties that Bind Bells that Toll”, which was presented for the first time at the Warwick Tree Jumper Exhibition.
Our entry received a “Highly Commended” award in the Open Artistic Section.
We extend our heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Nat Billing and Mary Elizabeth Barron who worked on this exhibition – great job ladies!
