Wool Knit, Eucalypt Print 2017

Barbara Wheeler is an Australian textile artist creating wearable art that expresses her deep connection to nature.  Working with natural fibres, botanical prints and dyes, each piece tells a story about place and retains the fragrance of leaves and flowers that give colour to cloth.  Her practice sits at the intersection of traditional craft, contemporary design and social change. 

Since 2016 etc designs have been slowly handcrafted in Canberra and Barbara has run many workshops for those who wanted to learn about natural dyeing and printing.   


During 2019 Barbara will be on the move, researching and documenting natural dyes in wearables and objects in Australia and New Zealand.
