Description

Six whimsical stories crafted from memories, fantasy and hope.

These tales of the past and of imagined futures use weaving, embroidery, printing, collage and frottage to talk about vanishing craft traditions; showcase local and personal histories; and present endangered animals bent on saving the planet.

These fresh, rich stories reinterpret the past and suggest, through play, new ways to coexist and reinvent the world.

Foibles, Fables + Folktales is also showing at Lost Eden Creative, 16 October – 17 November.
