Christine Lethlean is a textile and fibre artist living in Clunes in the Central Goldfields of Victoria Australia. She had been a practising artist for over 30 years, and designs and teaches.
Christine owns and runs a working studio in Clunes and hosts regular Creative Stitching @thestudio sessions for students. She also teaches more broadly regionally and both interstate and overseas by request.
In all of her work, Christine uses textiles, fibres and mixed media that are often reclaimed, recycled or found. Torn, cut or printed upon, her materials are constructed piece by piece, layer upon layer to form a range of individual art pieces, that can be framed, installed or worked into home decor items such as lampshades or cushions.
Her subject matter varies from domestic to the controversial however the underpinning philosophy in her studio work is based upon the age old ritual of coming together, sharing, experimenting and testing new ways of working.
