    This week we are back with an episode outlining the changes which will be happening so that we can continue to connect during this time of social distancing. For our followers around the world we will probably be closer as the coronavirus pandemic pushes me to get over my inhibitions and really show up on social media; speaking face to face on YouTube and livestreaming on other sites.

    Apart from moving our classes online I have a few other ideas about how we can support our community during this challenging period…including a digital artist’s residency! Tune in to find out more about our plans for the coming months.

    And so that we can learn more about how we can help you through this we would be so grateful if you could fill out the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RBDXHCF

    Kim Lieberman

    Kim Lieberman

    The work of South African artist Kim Lieberman takes us on a journey; seeking to investigate communication and interaction between people her work has an extraordinary global vision which dissects figuratively and at times literally the currency of connection.

    Through drawing, sculpture, stitching and lace, Lieberman explores responsibility, generosity and social response. Using deeply significant materials such as money, postage stamps and lace she challenges us to think differently about the meanings we attach to these materials across cultures and time.

    It was an absolute pleasure to speak with Kim for this episode as she shares insights into her practice as well as some of her current work which is part of the inaugural exhibition at Finkelstein Gallery in Melbourne until September 28, 2019.

    Isabel Avendano Hazbun

    Isabel Avendano Hazbun

    Bringing together two of the major fields of traditional craft & design – Textiles and Wood – designer Isabel Avendaño Hazbún creates functional and nonfunctional art objects which open up new dialogues about material, dress and identity.
    Her innovative and often surprising use of materials offers a refreshing and unique take on both crafts which is continually evolving into a rich and complex creative language. Whether she is making objects for the home or to be worn on the body Isabel’s work pushes us to think differently about the relationship between objects and our bodies.
    In this episode of TextileStories Isabel joins me to discuss her creative process and her current exhibition GIANTS which is on at the Australian Design Centre in Sydney until September 25, 2019.

    Ishraq Zraikat

    Ishraq Zraikat

    Sometimes an artist travels far and wide to discover that in the end all roads lead home. Jordanian designer and artist Ishraq Zraikat has had an incredible professional journey so far; studying architecture in the United States, textile design in Italy, working as a designer in architecture and fashion and even as a design journalist in New York her travels and cross cultural experiences have led her to have a unique insight into the world of design in three very different cultures and industries. Now having returned to Amman, where she grew up she is digging deep into the roots of Jordanian textile culture and seeking ways to bring this tradition into a sustainable future.
    In this episode Ishraq shares some of her experiences of working across cultures and continents, and some of her new projects including a campaign to bring local Jordanian wool into use and to revisit the beautiful traditional Bedouin rugs of Jordan in a way that brings them into the world of contemporary design and fashion.
    Aside from the themes of industry and design this episode touches on the deeper themes of cultural identity and homecoming. Finding a new way to connect with one’s culture of origin and is a particularly relevant conversation for those who (myself included), have divided their lives between two countries and are seeking to reconnect and reestablish themselves in their country of origin.
    This episode is quite long and has an epic quality so make yourselves a pot of tea and get ready to hear some amazing stories and a very personal approach to design.

    You can find out more about Ishraq and her work on her website: http://ishraqzraikat.com/
    Or follow her on Instagram: @ishraqzraikat

    There are also two short videos about Ishraq’s work here:

    Michele Elliot

    Michele Elliot

    Love, passion, courage, triumph, transcendence…there are eternal themes which are common to art across cultures and centuries. Another eternal theme, death, has been a source of inspiration to many artists and so it should perhaps not be so surprising that an organization which arranges funerals should seek the collaboration of an artist in residence, and yet it somehow feels taboo.
    This week on TextileStories I had the immense pleasure of speaking with artist Michele Elliot about her role as artist in residence at Tender Funerals, a non-profit community organization that organizes funerals and support for grieving families. The role of handwork and sewing circles as a tool for helping people through difficult times and to reconnect with others, and the tender art of giving comfort to perfect strangers simply because that is part of being human.
    Join us as we discuss Michele’s experience, the topics of death and grief and the beautiful body of work which has come out of this creative journey.

    You can see more of Michele’s work on her website: https://micheleelliot.com/

    Leesha Arora Prune India

    Leesha Arora Prune India

    It is the best feeling in the world to see a student graduate and find their true path and the joy it brings me to see Leesha Arora, founder and creative director of Prune India, finding so much success and fulfilment in her work is priceless. I first met Leesha in 2012 when she came to Milan with a group of her classmates to do Summer School. It was clear that while her classmates were working towards their graduation with the intention of designing for some of India’s major textile companies, Leesha was different. She wanted to do her own thing and was trying to find her niche.
    And what a beautiful niche she found! In 2013 she founded Prune India, a company which makes bespoke floral jewellery for brides, particularly for the Mehendi and Haldi (henna and turmeric) ceremonies which are a part of traditional Hindu weddings. Taking her lifelong passion for weddings and her gift for helping brides to find just the right things for their special day, Leesha has been able to found and grow a successful company (which has now become 4 shops) with it’s flagship store in Delhi’s trendy fashion district Shahpur Jat.
    It was wonderful to chat with Leesha about her work and how she created a space for herself within the colourful, sumptuous and quite competitive bridal fashion market.
