  • Weaving Eucalypts Project: Wangaratta

    23 February 2024 - 31 March 2024

    The Weaving Eucalypts Project is a collaborative project that explores local colour, cultural connections and shared weaving traditions. It began in response to a challenge to create a work that revealed the capacity of textiles to connect communities and cultures together. Extending from my research into plant dye experiments conducted into Australian plants and the unique colours extracted from then, the project features 100 panels woven with fabric dyed by 60 collaborators from 10 countries around the Indian Ocean and with over 50 identified eucalypts species, creates an interesting community of practitioners and highlights the unique colours ‘hidden’ in eucalyptus.
