In her Mulmur studio, accomplished fabric artist Pat Burns-Wendland has produced a series of four handwoven silk kimonos representing the seasons of her life. With the assistance of the Reed Cooper Bursary from Dufferin Arts Council, Pat spent a year experimenting with paper lamination, a labour-intensive process using stencils made from old photos and other memorabilia, to create the works. Pat began her career as a spinner and now designs, dyes, weaves and sews her artistic clothing and accessories. She is also active in promoting awareness of fabric arts in the Headwaters community. Seasons of Life will be exhibited at Dufferin County Museum & Archives from April 2 to June 5. patburnswendland.com

Spring and Summer, each 48″ x 58″. Handwoven, stencilled silk. Photos by Pete Paterson.
