SOMERSET CELEBRATES ART IN JUNE
The Condensery is hosting a special weekend of talks and workshops in June as part of the Somerset Celebrates Art month.
“We are made of many threads, brought together which compose our identity and experience.” Jody Rallah
Join this weaving circle workshop where artist Jody Rallah will guide you through a basket weaving session. Engage with fibres, learn about the history of First Nations weaving practice and make your own small basket.
You are encouraged to bring some of your own textile threads and/or organic matter so long as it is meaningful to you (encouraged – not mandatory), and we will weave these elements into your basket.
Jody Rallah is a descendant of the Biri Gubba, Yuggera and Warangu peoples, who works across object making, sculptural installation, painting, sound and performance to create knowledge vessels as embodiments of living histories.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Somerset Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland. This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance.
