Cultural Threads
Drum Theatre, Dandenong 
2016

Here and Now was made as a site specific installation for the Drum Theatre in Dandenong as part of the Cultural Threads Festival. The community has around
140 different cultures and I worked with primary school children and various cultural groups to produce around 60 engraved glass panels depicting details of fabrics and textures from diverse cultures. 

 

In the centre of the installation hang a series of my powder printed glass panels with details of fabrics and laces sourced from the collection of Mrs Dorothy Hart, a seam-stress who lived in one of the grandest houses in Dandenong for over 50 years.
