Margaret is a Corowa fibre artist who has been exploring the possibilities of wool combined with other fibres for over thirty years.

She graduated with a Diploma of Education majoring in Sculpture and Jewellery but on moving to Corowa discovered the joys of working with wool.

She completed a Certificate of Weaving and a Certificate of Textile Colour and Design. Margaret is a member of Victorian Feltmakers Inc and continues studying with international and Australian masters of textiles.

She conducts workshops herself, teaching all aspects of felting.

Felting has been one of her techniques for many years, but as it was considered by many to be hard and heavy she has experimented with new ideas and discovered the softness and lightness of cobweb, gossamer and nuno felting.

Working with Merino wool, silk, flax, mohair, cashmere and alpaca fibre combined with fabrics of silk, wool, polyester and metallic threads she has created unique and individual shawls, wraps, jackets and scarves that are warm, strong and very light to wear.

The silk and fibres are often individually hand dyed, creating truly original and one-off pieces.

Fun hand felted hats, bags and colourful felted beads compliment her range of wearable art.

Her creations are worn in Australia, UK, US, France, Japan and Hong Kong.

Margaret was one of the founding members of Gallery 294, Corowa Arts Co-operative, a gallery to showcase and sell the high quality arts and craft created by regional artists.

She has recently exhibited in the Wodonga Carnivale Spice Wearable Art with a piece titled Moroccan Spice Bazaar, and is currently preparing for a solo exhibition st.
