A talented textile and fibre artist, Christine Lethlean’s love of fabric and use of stitching as an art form first began as a child growing up on a wheat and sheep farm in Western Australia.
Christine’s work is a unique blend of ideas and influences, accumulated over years of creative practice and perfected through teaching and working with other talented textile artists from across the world. Her skill with textiles, surface design and repurposing preloved fabrics, coupled with her flair for working with color and texture puts her work in a class of its own. Her pieces are in high demand for those who appreciate quality and owning individually beautiful, one-off pieces.
As qualified Art Therapist, Christine uses the reflective and resourceful processes embedded in art therapy in her own work and she is a firm believer in the numerous benefits the creative space can bring to our lives.
Since relocating to rural Victoria her focus and creative energy has concentrated on inspiring others in artistic design and needlework techniques, encouraging her students to experiment with colours and textures, helping build the confidence needed to bring their own personality into their projects.
Outside the trail Christine facilitates textile art workshops from her home studio. She also travels broadly to teach her craft by arrangement.
