FORAGE – a Journey into Fibre: Basket Makers of Tasmania
Basket makers are focussed on natural fibre work, continually challenging and exploring a broader experimentation, which embraces the traditional while encouraging the contemporary. This exhibition is based on “recycle, repurpose, reuse” with basket makers utilising materials which are home grown, scavenged, gifted, rescued, and reimagined. Our aim is to encourage the viewer to interact with the works and review their assumptions about this ancient craft by considering the potential in our contemporary world where basket weaving is often dismissed as a functional craft.
Please note that Rosny Farm Arts Centre will be closed from 24th December – 8th of January (inclusive) for the Christmas/New Year break.
