Kay Lawrence

Kay Lawrence AM is Emeritus Professor at the University of South Australia where she had a distinguished career as an educator in the visual arts, becoming the first woman appointed to head the South Australian School of Art in 2002. She has an international profile as a tapestry weaver and her work is held in many public collections in Australia and overseas. In her visual art and writing practices she critically engages with matters of personal and community identity, exploring ideas of loss and connection through the materiality of textiles. Her art practice ranges across woven tapestry to installation and performance works using humble domestic materials like buttons and string to explore the material and immaterial resonances of human life. 


JamFactory is a unique not-for-profit organisation that champions the social, cultural, and economic value of craft and design in daily life. Through our programs we inspire audiences, build careers, and extend contemporary craft and design into new markets.
