We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Glenda Dann join us from to host workshops and studio visits here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.
Glenda Dann has a Diploma in Fashion and Design, Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Textiles and Printmaking along with a private course in the Theory of Woven Design.
Glenda enjoys all aspects of textiles, dyeing, stitching, making, weaving, manipulation, creating and exploration of all techniques.
Silk, linen and cotton are the choice of fibre to work with and explore within her weaving and sewing practice.
Currently Glenda’s focus is on hand stitching and how she can marry that with the handwoven cloth to create a more art based woven item, to be warn or just admired.
Glenda’s local studio is based in the wooded landscape of Gidgegannup in a dedicated space, that houses her wooden floor looms, table looms and numerous sewing machines.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a monthlong community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.
These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
