Harriet Goodall has run an independent art studio making sculpture, lighting and woven installations for private and commercial clients since 2007. She exhibits regularly and has passed on her passion for contemporary basketmaking techniques in workshops across Australia and around the world.
After a creative childhood spent on a wheat farm in rural Australia, she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree, worked in media in Europe and travelled the world, started a fair-trade business selling hand-made naturally dyed textiles from South America and then trained extensively in varied craft techniques under contemporary masters. She has since become known as an innovator in the makers movement and has developed a recognisable visual language that is at once rustic and refined. Her welded, felted, stitched and woven works bring texture, patina and warmth to modern spaces.
Harriet lives with her farmer husband and two children on an old dairy farm near the beautiful village of Robertson on the coastal escarpment south of Sydney. She currently works out of a commercial studio space shared with textile artist Natalie Miller. The studio & yarn store is open to the public Fridays and Saturdays 11am – 3pm and there is a rotating calendar of workshops on site.
