LOVERS of fibre art will be in for a treat, with artist Elli

LOVERS of fibre art will be in for a treat, with artist Ellie Vangelowski hosting a workshop next month.

Chinchilla Patches and Piecemakers have invited Ellie to come to Chinchilla to teach during a weekend workshop being held on June 18 and 19.

During the weekend participants will create an A3 size landscape using fibre.

Ellie’s work is currently being exhibited at the local Lapunyah Art Gallery.

The workshop runs from 8.30am-4pm on both days and costs $50.

Ellie, who has exhibited her works countless times since 1972, has works of art hung all over the world, including one piece which currently resides in Queensland’s parliament house.

She began painting in 1969 with three correspondence courses with the Sydney Art School.

A member of flying arts in Winton from 1972-1992, she has had a long and successful career teaching art.

Ellie took an eight year break from artistry in 2000, and in 2008 began experimenting with art pieces on the sewing machine.

Coming to Mundubbera to live in 2012, she said the country inspired her to do landscape art in the style of raw edge on the sewing machine.

The workshop in June is being made possible with the assistance of the Regional Arts Development Fund which is a collaboration between the Queensland Government and the Western Downs Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
