Wendy Golden

    Fibre Artist

    Vessels, sculptural work and large-scale installations all play an important role in Wendy Golden's practice. She finds inspiration in the materials she uses and the environment in which they are found. Research into the Indigenous and introduced plant fibres have been integral in her work, which has been shown in many exhibitions. Wendy has undertaken private commissions and large-scale public works, such as the screen at ACMI in Federation Square. Passing on skills by teaching in schools, forums and small classes is a particularly enjoyable aspect of Wendy's work. Throughout her career, she has worked for many community groups and festivals. In the past few years she has been an installation artist for several textile fibre forums, Artist in Residence at MLC, Open Bench at Craft Victoria and at Darwin Art Gallery/ Museum complex. During 2005 she mentored an emerging artist under the auspices of the Australia Council and Territory Craft. Wendy writes a regular column for Textile Fibre Forum Magazine.
