WAFTA Talk: On the Point of a Needle with Katrina Virgona

Hear about Katrina's journey with textiles over the last 20 years. Katrina works three dimensionally with a diverse range of materials including wool, wire, wood, fur and hair. Primary processes include wiring, binding, coiling, felting and stitching. Katrina’s work has been exhibited, published and collected locally, nationally and internationally. She will talk about how she came to be part of an annual European miniature textile exhibition that toured 4 galleries in Italy and France in 2017/2018. You too could apply to be part of this annual show.

On her return she lived, worked and studied in various locations around Australia before finally settling in Perth in 1984. Katrina completed two Bachelor degrees majoring in psychology (University of New England, NSW) and then in visual arts (First Class Honours - Curtin University, WA).
