The Eurobodalla Fibre and Textile Artists’ Group (EFTAG) is once again showcasing Wearable Art in its annual fashion parade. It will be held on Saturday 12 October, 6.30pm for a 7pm start at St Mary’s Performing Arts Centre, Queen St, Moruya.
This year’s theme is ‘Conscious Couture’. You will see repurposed fabrics, found and used objects, enhanced vintage clothes with a second life, and materials destined for the waste stream. Some garments have been made consciously using natural dyes rather than chemicals, or other fabrics which are environmentally friendly. Some have been made consciously slow, with attention to each stitch or technique.
EFTAG is a group of dynamic, innovative and inspiring fibre and textile artists. Mandy Hillson, President of EFTAG said “It is a treasure trove of skills, knowledge in many textile arts practices and we share our wisdom and techniques. We have over 40 members most of whom reside in Eurobodalla Shire but also in the region. We continue to evolve and develop. It’s so exciting.”
“Our creative EFTAG members are again displaying their talent, imagination, skill, humour and commitment. Whatever you are about to see on the catwalk, it will be unique, creative, eclectic and sometimes wacky!”
“AND, you will be even be able to buy some of these garments and accessories after the show” said Mandy.
Be amazed, inspired, laugh and enjoy! Frock up and come and share bubbles, nibbles and the 2019 Art to Wear Parade.
