Rebekah Archer was an Artist in Residence at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in 2015. She gave a talk about her practice on 12.2.15 at the ATW.
Rebekah Archer has recently completed a BA in Textile Design at RMIT, majoring in weave. Her work focuses on sustainable fashion, with a core philosophy based around the principles of slow design. She considers adaptability, durability and purpose as an imperative part of the creation process. Rebekah is primarily interested in the act of making; her work is on ongoing study of what it means to holistically and transparently construct textiles by hand. Rebekah currently runs a sustainable jewelry label ‘Lorica’, where she creates contemporary, one off pieces using discarded materials such as bone, recycled yarns and metals. She has exhibited textile and jewelry work locally and nationally.
