Heather Walters has worked within education & design and with art, colour and textiles over many years. She has held previous exhibitions of her handweaving at Knox Civic Centre (2015), Jarmbi Gallery, Burrinja (2015), CrossXpollinatioN, Colac & Red Rock Gallery (2014), CrossXpollinatioN, Colac (2013), Brunswick Street Gallery (2012), Oakhill Gallery, Mornington (2012) and The Vault, Whitehorse Art Space (2011).
During 2013, intensive weaving studies in Japan with Kenzo Jo, co-founder of Saori, expanded her weaving vocabulary and strengthened her desire to help others discover their own creative expression through free style hand weaving. She opened Art Weaver Studio in Box Hill in early 2014, one of only three internationally registered Saori weaving studios in Australia.
Inspiration:Heather is inspired by the power and freedom that we each have as individuals to create. From our own experiences, encounters and emotions, we bring ourselves into whatever we create. Saori weaving frees Heather to follow her intuition and be absorbed into the creative process.
