High Tea (Curated Workshop)

This was combined with a deliciously colourful Botanic Inspired High Tea of 6 courses. Set in the lush tropical gardens on the Manor. This event was presented as part of the Sunshine Coast Council “The fabric - Slow Fashion, Artful Living” program and was supported by the Regional Arts [...]

I went to take photos of this ancient relic, and the tree was offered [...]

This work is about my attempt to create a voice in response to what I learn. My humanness seems simplistic and clumsy, using the process of natural dyeing, isolating components in the form of colour, sharing the complexity of the essence of tree. Many hours have been spent gathering and processing, searching for leaves from the Eucalyptus tereticornis, the [...]
