About Julie:

Julie Ryder is a Canberra-based textile designer who has gained national and international recognition for her work. She is a practicing textile artist, designer and educator. Originally trained in science, Julie retrained as a textile designer at Melbourne Institute of Textiles, and started her own design studio focussing on designing and hand-printing fabrics for home-wares, fashion and interiors. She complete a Master of Arts (Visual Arts – Textiles) at ANU in 2004.

Her hybrid practice combines her knowledge of science with her love of textiles, and she uses nature as both muse and co-collaborator. Natural materials are used for dyes and as materials for paper-based artworks.
