This week’s guest on TextileStories is Maggie Hensel-Brown, a mixed media artist from Newcastle, Australia who has recently discovered the slow and beautiful art of needle lace. Having had an interest in textiles since childhood Maggie majored in sculpture and worked with various materials and techniques before being introduced to needle lace in 2015. This new technique has inspired a shift in Maggie’s practice and has been the starting point for an intriguing and exciting new body of work.
Join us as Maggie shares her new-found love for needle lace, her whimsical interpretation of the technique and the fabulous journey which it has inspired.
