About the Show
You can make a string out of anything at Weave It!—an evolutionary exhibition for children and their grown-ups to immerse in the engaging practice of textiles. Learn craft practices grounded in First Nations explorations of interconnectivity, storytelling, and sustainability through hands-on craft incorporating natural and found materials such as sticks or recycled materials to build into the work.
Join multidisciplinary textile artists Lisa Waup (Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander) and John Brooks to create a growing wonderland of colourful, bright and fun fabrics and textures throughout the gallery spaces at The Store (formally c3 Contemporary Art Space).
Convent Kids and their parents are welcome to drop in, join workshops and collaborate through come-and-go activities that spark discussions about recycling materials, retelling the stories of First Nation cultures and celebrating community.
