Megan Walsh-Cheek is an Adelaide Hills textile artist. Her handwoven wall hangings and vessels debuted during the 2013 SALA Festival, followed by The Goodwood Art House Gallery. Megan coordinated a Collaborative Community Weaving throughout the duration of her SALA exhibition, and is passionate about demystifying art making. She encourages individuals of all ages to explore their creativity at her weaving workshops. Megan’s early childhood studies underpin her development of workshops for young children, set to launch in 2014.
Inspired by the Japanese Saori Weaving tradition, Megan works in a spontaneous manner, free-style weaving and felting with tiny slivers of re-purposed fabric, tapestry cotton, lichen covered oak twigs and freshly harvested willow. Her works feature a delicate use of negative space and a neutral, calm, earthy palette.
“Re-using and re-thinking the materials we already have underpins all my pieces. My work is the result of lots of joyful pottering around with twigs, lace, and my precious reclaimed fabric stash. There is something so satisfying about creating a delicate tapestry of textures and colours, and discovering it’s own little personality once the last piece has nestled in with the rest” – Megan Walsh-Cheek.
Megan is currently working on a new series for inclusion in the Little Heroes Foundation 2014 inaugural art exhibition 'the ART of giving'.
