Join us for an Artist Talk presented by Catherine O’Leary on Friday 18 March 2022 at 11am.

Catherine O’Leary is an Australian Artist, based in Castlemaine who works primarily in the Textile Arts. With a formal training in Fine Arts, Catherine’s portfolio spans 40 years.

Crafting wool felt by hand is a technique which Catherine has been exploring since the 1990’s. She has mastered the art of feltmaking and utilises it as a vehicle for the creation of three-dimensional forms. These forms consist of wearable garments and innovative sculptures.

Silk fabric and wool fibre are Catherine’s preferred textile mediums. Hand dyed, printed, hand embroidered, and illustration techniques make each piece a unique work of art. Catherine’s garments are constructed from very few pattern pieces. Most of the fabric used has been recycled, making her practice sustainable and environmentally conscious.
