Michelle Elliot

Michelle Elliot is one of the Artists in Residence at Tender Funerals. She started the residency in April 2017 and works with families to create textile keepsakes.

Michele is a visual artist, educator and occasional writer. Her artworks include textiles, drawing and sculpture and have been exhibited widely across Australia. She often works with everyday materials such as fabric, clothing and thread, to produce large scale, ephemeral installations, whose themes include memory, place and the passing of time.

Michele has been a lecturer in tertiary education for many years. More recently, her focus has been running textile and embroidery workshops in regional NSW. Michele enjoys works with small groups to create a supportive and responsive learning environment, and a relaxed space for conversation and connections.
