Weaving Water Stories

Traditional practices and contemporary stories are told through an installation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander weaving.

From the salt water, to the fresh water, Weaving Water Stories celebrates cultural narratives of water and place, through the medium of fibre art. This exciting collaboration brings together six Indigenous specialist weavers from South East Queensland to northern New South Wales. Each artist uses unique techniques that have been inherited over countless generations. The sculptural works are inspired by family anecdotes and cultural knowledge involving water.

Join artists for a rare opportunity to discover the diversity of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture of this region, through weaving demonstrations, artist and curators talks. The large-scale public art installation inspires us to appreciate water – the giver of life which sustains us, replenishes us and connects us all.

Weaving Water Stories brings together six individual Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander weavers; Donna Page, Sonja Carmichael, Hannah Gutchen, Kim Williams, Kylie Cardwell and Sylvia Nakachi.

 

Registrations will be released eight weeks prior to each workshop.

Mon 21, May — Sun 27, May
