THE Common Threads Wearable Art showcase was a big hit at this year’s Stretch Fest on the weekend.

The overall winner was Italian artist Lisbeth Wahl, for her garment Set Your Light Free.

Wahl spent years of exploration in tailoring and pattern-making to find her niche in felting. Felting involves mixing materials and colours, creating forms and texture, as well as experimenting with integrating optical fibres.
