About Jo Dyer

Jo is a Newcastle based artist. She studied a Bachelor of Arts (Creative Arts and French) at the University of Newcastle which included a semester of study in La Rochelle, France. She graduated in 2008. Since graduating she has exhibited her work in many group and solo exhibitions in Newcastle, Melbourne and Sydney.

As a child, Jo spent a lot of time in the garden, observing plants and insects. She cites these formative years as a major influence on the type of work she creates, her inspiration largely drawn from the intricate, textural and often transient details found in the natural world.

About Clare Burton

Clare Burton is an Adelaide based fibre artist that creates unique and colourful woven wall hangings using yarn and fibres that she sources from local dyers and spinners whenever possible. Clare has always been a maker but discovered weaving late in 2014. After attending a beginner workshop that Christmas, she fell in love with the freedom of letting the yarn lead the way.

Clare rarely plans beyond the colours and yarn she wants to use, preferring to let the weave evolve as she works to create a piece that is one of a kind.
