Bawden, Carol - Fiber
So as the owner of The Painted Bird, I can write in the first person here. I am a fiber artist who has worked in textiles since I was a little girl who got a tiny Singer sewing machine with a crank for Christmas. I was lucky to have been a student at Kingswood School Cranbrook and have a great studio art experience with kind and funny mentors. Robert Kidd, (weaving), Pam Stump Walsh (sculpture) and Jessie Sinclair (dance) were friends, even if I was only in my teens. Clothing and bags in leather and other fibers, woven wall hangings, rugs and pillows, soft sculpture, wood carving, wearable art, and experiments in light sculpture and twig weaving are part of my output. So far.
