This is my home for the next few days. 12 hours travel from home in Far North Queensland. I'm freezing, but it doesn't matter because I'm surrounded by some of the most amazing textile artists in the whole world. Selling Yarns brings together Indigenous textile and fibre artists from around the world to share their stories in the mornings and practical hands on sessions in the afternoons. It's just taken my breath away.
Erub Island weavers from the Torres Straits in yesterday's coconut weaving workshop.
Tjanpi Desert Weavers sharing their brilliantly bright and powerful weaving
stories and skills.
The start of my spirit weaving using Tjanpi fibres from the desert.
A sensory overload of textures, colour, nationalities, stories and culture.
I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to bring my staff from our little remote Cape York community all the way down to the big smoke to be a part of this amazing experience. If your living in Canberra or if your close, make sure you come and check out the Seven Sisters performance tonight and tomorrow night.
