The exhibit also includes: hand woven tapestry by Janna Marie Vallee from Capilano University Textile programme and miniature tapestries from Linda Wallace’s Ambivalent series. Animal pelts, suits and marionettes fashioned from felted Icelandic wool are Eszter Burghardt’s current work entitled ‘Decoy.
Sooke artist Sasha Gale has a love for natural dyeing and the hand-stitched finishing of quilts. She is best known for exquisite quilted bed covers and pillows made from custom dyed fabrics. Her work can be found at country fairs and on-line at www.hopechestquilts.ca
