Eco Dyer, Yvonne Dalton from South Australia

Fiber Art Now Summer 13 Yvonne   TIGHR member and presenter at the 2012 Tri-Ennial in Strathalbyn, South Australia, YVONNE DALTON is one of seven international organic printmakers featured in the Summer 2013 issue of Fiber Art Now magazine. Yvonne speaks in the article “A very important consideration and obligation for me is to minimize my impact on the environment, as concerns of landscape are central to my art practice.”  The opening full page image of her banners flowing in the breezes on South Australia’s landscape emphasizes her philosophy.

Audience listening to Yvonne Dalton's presentation

  During the TIGHR presentation, in her quiet voice, Yvonne told her story and showed examples of cloth, garments and art objects made from the marked fabrics left in the elements for months.

She also assisted conference members in a workshop to create braided lanyards which closed the felted folders we made in another workshop.

Congratulations to Yvonne for well deserved recognition. I ended up subscribing to the magazine to get a copy as I was unable to find it in Ottawa, Canada. Am trying her technique on a few trees of my own most significantly the maple tree. After five months – there is some success happening.
