Mulga Bill’s Bicycle
Darling Downs Textile Art Group

Participating Artists: Gillian Knott, Sue Schmidt, Jenny Burgess, Sandra Tessmann, Noelle Hodges, Hilary Fogerty, Margie Creek, Elizabeth Schmidt, Robyn Anderson, Jan Scudamore and Kaye Joyce


A collection of eleven panels created by members of the Darling Downs Textile Art Group illustrating Banjo Patterson’s famous verse Mulga Bill’s Bicycle.

Arranged in sequence, each panel brings a different set of lines to life, narrating through simple imagery to add momentum and dramatic effect. Using predominately textile fibre medium, various forms of fabric manipulation are showcased; including felting, fabric dyeing and painting, hand and machine embroidery, applique, fabric piecing, quilting, and drawing.

Artist’s creative design choices add individual flair to the collective effort, and draw attention to the diversity of techniques in textile art.
