Where are they now?

I thought I would try to find out what all our former members are doing now. Some left quite early on to pursue their artistic endeavours elsewhere. Some stayed the first 2 years, and then moved on.

This is my summary, but if any of you former members want to write something personal about your art, or if anyone knows about the people I can't find at the moment, please update us.

It  was fun to share part of the Latitude journey with them.

I think we could easily identify Katie's work here. Katie Pigeon -

Meta is working with metal and electroplating fabric. Meta Heemskerk –

Linden's detailed and careful work is being exhibited in Australia and with a travelling SAQA exhibition. Linden Lancaster -

Heidi is still mainly working with her yarns and fibres. Heidi Wulfraat -

Gurli Gregersen has changed her focus to photography recently.
