".......Caithness Fibre Artist - Joanne B. Kaar:
Last Friday (29th March 2019), members and guests were introduced to the fascinating work of Caithness textile and fibre artist Joanne Kaar. Her experiments with grasses and paper, inspired by historic and cultural research, are totally intriguing. A current project, researching the traditional house-dress or wrap around apron, was of particular interest to everyone. The personal collection of these domestic garments, donated by Sheila Moir, was on display and many of them were familiar to the audience. Joanne is also interested in hearing about people’s family memories and stories of house dresses.
Joanne is one of the artists in residence at Inverewe Botanical Garden this year and you can find out more details about her work on her website and blog................"
