I just thought I'd post up a link to Grampians Texture 2010, as the program has just recently been released. I went this year and was blown away - it was just unreal!
Basically the organisers get together a range of different textile artists to run two- and four-day workshops on a wide range of different topics, you show up and have a blast staying in the beautiful Grampians in Western Victoria. Unfortunately I don't think I will make it to this one, as I'll have a two month old bub by then, but seeing as it books out so quickly, I thought I'd let everyone know!
Here's the link:http://www.visithallsgap.com.au/grampianstexture/
I highly recommend booking early, as I ended up having to go with about my 6th choice this year - but I did leave my booking until rather late! Accomodation in the Grampians can range from 5 star to backpackers - something for everyone.
And just a final note: I'm not an organiser/advertiser/artist or anyone involved in the organisation of this event - I just had such a ball at Grampians Texture 2009, that I wanted to share the love!
I hope this is useful to someone!
