2QAQ meeting - with special guest Robyn Woodrow

Black Ballerina Dress
It's that time again when the Queensland Quilters Art Quilt group (2QAQ) gets together at the Wellers Hill Bowls Club (44 Esher Street, Wellers Hill, Brisbane). We usually gather from 12.30pm - and tomorrow is no different with special guest Robyn Woodrow, artist and designer. Robyn creates amazing art at Red Zebra Designs through recycling, up-cycling - especially recycling paper.  Robyn creates beautiful garments, asks you to suspend belief with the way she re-purposes books and makes fabulous items out of moulded vinyl records. One of her folded paper gowns was recently featured in  Peppermint Magazine (Practical Publishing) earlier this year. Robyn is sharing her artistic journey with us tomorrow from 12.30pm. We also have our demonstration / mini-workshop - tomorrow we'll be making beads - using rolled papers, water colours, Shiva sticks and wires - lots of fun and we'll be focusing on adding textural qualities to the surface of our art quilts.  We will also spend about 20 minutes dabbling in our journals and having some fun with creative thinking -  and some of our group will be sharing their recent experiences on a textile tour of Morocco. Please join us - visitors are always welcome.
