Daniella Amit gave a presentation at our February meeting. She began her career in landscape design, and now works in fibre art, jewelry, and interior design in her business La Penna Design.
She has been featured on the North Shore Art Crawl, and her art has been shown at the annual Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver.
Daniella teaches techniques for working with many mediums that can be used to create clothing, personal accessories, and soft furnishings.
Her creations incorporate a variety of mediums besides fabric such as metal and beads and a variety of techniques such as fabric dyeing, eco printing, and embroidery.
Delicate silks, textured materials, washes of hand dyed colour, glints of metal, decorative stitching, and other touches come together in works of intriguing fabric art.
Ilse and Isabelle brought their fabric art inspired by one of Daniella’s classes.
