Dear Alliance Francaise and members,
My Name is Yanny Split, I am a Dutch Immigrant who arrived in New Zealand in 1987 and I love New Zealand.
I am organizing an exhibition to be held at the Waikato Museum of Art and History with the theme of Fibre Connecting People.
The idea is to connect people born overseas and now live in the Waikato, to present a handmade article make with any fibre or textiles that represent your lives either before or after arriving in New Zealand. It can be knitted, woven, quilting,embroidery, patchwork, felting or any other technique that you can use. It could be an article of clothing, a wall hanging or anything else. It could also be an item of fabric that you treasure and brought here from your home country
I would love to have one piece from every country that is represented in the Waikato to be part of the exhibition. The exhibition will be held at the Waikato Museum of Art and History in Hamilton and the opening will be on the 18th May in 2017
If you are interested and want to ask more questions we could arrange a meeting. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also find out more about me and also contact me via our website www.kiwialan.co.nz
All information will be online later
I really hope that you would be able to be part of the exhibition
