Linda Brine Artist's Talk

Join us for an artist's talk with textile artist Linda Brine. Linda holds an Honours BFA from the University of Windsor and a certificate in Adult Education from the University of New Brunswick. Originally from Stratford, in 1989 she moved to Fredericton to study weaving, dyeing and computer assisted design at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. During this time she also began her self-directed explorations of hand bookbinding and the possibilities of weaving paper. Regular participation in numerous specialized workshops with many wonderful teachers expanded her repertoire of material practices. Linda joined the staff at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in 1999, and from 2001-2011 she served as Studio Head of Textiles/Fibre Arts, teaching a wide range of fibre techniques, and managing the daily operations of the Fibre Arts Studio. Linda returned to Stratford, Ontario in 2012, and in 2014 embarked on a new adventure managing the Gallery Shop at the Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo, ON. She recently found a lovely old stone house with a third storey studio loft in Galt/Cambridge, where she now pursues her studio practice full time.
