Melanie Olde
Melanie Olde’s weaving practice is continually driven by curiosity and new learning. Her love of weaving started early, growing up on a goat farm with an engineering father and a mother involved in industrial textiles. At 18 Melanie went on to study jacquard weaving at Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio in Italy at 18 and completed her BA in Textile at the Australian National University in 2002. Her work explores new technology and old, with research interests in biomimetic and mathematical forms, and interpreting these in 3-dimensional loom-woven cloth, including embedded technology and new materials. She also has a keen interest in the history and development of complex woven structures in Asia. Melanie’s professional weaving experience has been in business, research, teaching and exhibiting nationally and internationally. Recently, she has been involved with the Complex Weavers, winning first place in Complexity (2020), and published articles for the Complex Weavers Journal.
