Boho Wall Hanging Workshop
With Zimmi Forest
Zimmi Forest is a fibre artist from Byron Bay who has a passion for sustainability and the environment. Zimmi works with nature, about nature and in nature.
Come join us and create an amazing wall hanging, made from natural fibres, a unique and beautiful piece of art work for your home. All materials are provided, including Guinea Fowl Feathers, but you are welcome to bring anything along you would like to use, such as shells, sticks, berries, other bird feathers etc….
We are very lucky to have Zimmi visiting and teaching us. Zimmi has kindly volunteered her time and skills, as her way of helping men & women in bush ‘doing it tough’ throughout this drought.
We will be gathering in ‘The Green House’ our indoor workspace and enjoy a chat, morning tea & lunch together. I will be providing delicious and wholesome food as my way of helping out men and women who need a break from their everyday. It will be an awesome day!
NOW for a little about Zimmi.
She loves basketry and has taught herself the skills to use discarded natural materials to make utilitarian objects. Zimmi studied fine art and from there her practise has expanded to include painting, metal, fishing line and glass.
Zimmi’s skills are based in basketry, carpentry, floristry, ceramics and welding and her work has been in many nationally recognised exhibitions including; Sculpture by the Sea, Conrad Jupiters, The Blake Prize and Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award.
Zimmi has had 10 solo shows at both commercial and regional galleries and has been commissioned to create over 100 artworks for public galleries, private clients, hospitals and resorts.
