The Geelong Forum and My Australian Students

Dineke McLean carousel bk

The Geelong Forum is a major conference of Fibers and Textile artists which takes place every year at the Geelong Grammar School in Australia. Approximately 300 artists, craftspersons, and vendors attend. This year I offered a sculptural book class at the conference and had seventeen enthusiastic students in the class. They created some wonderful books and pop-ups over the course of the  past week, and we had a great time sharing ideas and seeing examples of work by everyone who participated.

    Fantastic workshop. We learnt and acheived so much. The atmosphere was productive but not exhausting. The medium has so much potential. We all hope to see Carol back in Australia soon.
