Megan Walsh-Cheek is an Adelaide Hills textile artist. Her handwoven wall hangings and vessels debuted during the 2013 SALA Festival at the Seasonal Garden Cafe in Hahndorf, followed by a group exhibition at The Goodwood Art House Gallery. Megan coordinated a Collaborative Community Weaving throughout the duration of her SALA exhibition, & encourages individuals of all ages to explore their creativity at her weaving workshops. Megan is a founding resident of BRICK+MORTAR Creative Retail Hub + Cafe in Norwood, & will present an exhibition of a new body of work in this exciting new gallery space in December 2015. Megan will be represented during SALA 2015 in two group exhibitions: 'Four Legs' at Red Poles, Mclaren Vale, & 'Woven @ The Mill: Blankets Reimagined' at the Onkaparinga Woolen Mill, Lobethal. Inspired by the Japanese Saori Weaving tradition, Megan works in a spontaneous manner, free-style weaving, felting, jewellery making & vessel making with an array of textural materials: tiny slivers of re-purposed fabric, tapestry cotton, lichen covered oak twigs and freshly harvested willow. Her works feature a delicate use of negative space and a neutral, calm, earthy palette.

“Re-using and re-thinking the materials we already have underpins all my pieces. My work is the result of lots of joyful pottering around with twigs, lace, and my precious reclaimed fabric stash. There is something so satisfying about creating a delicate tapestry of textures and colours, and discovering it’s own little personality once the last piece has nestled in with the rest” – Megan Walsh-Cheek.
