About The Event
Julie is a professional textile designer and artist who has gained international recognition for her work that combines her expertise and interest in both science and art. After a preliminary career working in science, Julie retrained as a textile designer, graduating from the Melbourne Institute of Textiles in 1990 and going on to do a Masters at the Canberra School of Art, ANU. Since becoming obsessed by all things seaweed, she can either be found on a beach somewhere
collecting specimens, or in a herbarium basement poring through 19 th century collections. Occasionally she surfaces to conduct textile workshops in natural dyeing, indigo dyeing and screen-printing, both nationally and internationally.
