Textile Art, Fibre Art and Handwoven Wearable Art

Welcome! Metafour Studio is the work of Michele Fountain, textile artist and handweaver. I’m located in Upwey, in Melbourne’s lovely Dandenong Ranges.

My work explores colour and texture, and I most often weave on rigid heddle looms. I love to explore weave with non-traditional materials, such as chain, wire, and natural found objects.

Much of my work is for sale, and I take commissions if you have a special piece in mind.
