About the tutor:
Siân Boucherd was born in rural Western Australia in 1983. Following the completion of her Art and Design Degree in 2007, Boucherd pursued a curatorial practice in London, UK. A return to Australia in 2012 saw her return to the studio where Boucherds’ interest in nature manifest in her woven works. Through the use of natural fibres such as sisal, jute and wool, Boucherd creates meticulously hand crafted vessels primarily using a coiled basketry technique.
Currently living in Perth, WA, Boucherd takes her cues from nature’s architecture; formations such as pods, nests, cocoons and the unique striations that make up Western Australias’ ancient geology.
