The Life of a Professional Embroiderer – A Rusty Walkley Memorial Lecture
Saturday 15th July 2017 2:00 PM
Alexander Library, State Library of WA, Perth Cultural Centre, 25 Francis Street, Perth WA
The Embroiderers’ Guild of Western Australia is inviting everyone to this year’s Rusty Walkley lecture titled Preserving the Past and Creating the Future: The Work of a Professional Embroiderer. To be presented by award-winning professional embroiderer Jenny Adin-Christie, this special event will be held on Saturday, 15 July at 2:00 PM at the Alexander Library at Perth Cultural Centre.
Ms. Adin-Christie will give insight into her work as a professional embroiderer and how her passion for needle craft turned into a broad range of skills that allowed her to gain prominence amongst historians, collectors, fashion designers, and embroiderers’ guilds both in the UK and abroad.
Ms Adin-Christie has been a regular presenter within the Australian embroidery community, most notable of which is the annual Beating the Bush embroidery and craft fair in Adelaide. The lectures she has delivered covered stories behind the broad range of commissions that she has been privileged to be part of, such as the conservation and restoration of antique textiles and production of new works of art, and more recently, royal fashion.
