Based in Lake Grace, Western Australia, artist Tania Spencer combines the textile processes of embroidery, knit, crochet, and weaving with rural and industrial materials. Tania makes large-scale knitted installations, wire drawings, jewellery and sculptures from fencing wires.
Recently her work has shifted to include softer textile interventions in the public domain. Created with brightly coloured surveyors tape, these optimistic new installations are markers on the landscape, industrial signifiers of change, and places of activity.
She also makes site specific installation pieces with recycled textiles, plastics, and metals for festivals and community projects. Tania is available for private commissions, and takes sculpture workshop bookings for school and community groups.
