Fibre Arts graduate Hilary Omichinski’s corset was included in the 9th Annual Rural & Northern Art Show (Sept. 6 -Oct. 2nd 2011)as it was the winner of the Fibre Arts category at the Eastman Judged Art Exhibition held in Niverville, Manitoba.
Hilary studied Apparel Technolgy at Olds College in Olds, Alberta and Fibre Arts at the Haliburton School of The Arts, and she noted “the corset was a great way to amalgamate the two areas of study and bring them back to my home province.”
Hilary has since taught fibre dyeing classes at her former high school and used the corset as an example of how textile design and garment design may be combined.
