Weaving stories and culture

A Saltwater Freshwater Arts Alliance project supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW developing our regions weavers and showcasing the innovative and extraordinary creative Koori talent from the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Saltwater Freshwater worked with 12 weavers from across the Gumbaynggirr, Dunghutti, Biripi and Worimi nations, supporting them to develop fibre art fashion pieces to be showcased at the Saltwater Freshwater Arts 2021 exhibition and possible fashion shows and exhibitions in the future. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, the weavers met monthly via zoom and a closed Facebook group over a 6-month period to develop design concepts and to share ideas and support each other.

The finished pieces plus fashion style photographs of Aboriginal models wearing the pieces are now part of the SWFW Arts 2021 exhibition.
