RECLAIM THE VOID WORKSHOP SERIES: WEAVE A RAG RUG FOR COUNTRY (June 28 & 30, July 5)
Join us to be led through the background and processes to weave a rag rug over three workshop sessions:
Wednesday 28 June 1 to 4pm;
Friday 30 June 1 to 4pm; and
Wednesday 5 July 1 to 4pm.
The Reclaim The Void project was born from pain and grief of Indigenous elders in the Leonora community arising from the gaping mining holes left all over their country. The idea was conceived to symbolically "seal" one of the mining voids with an artwork expressing the story of country. The art chosen will consist of thousands of hand-made circular rag rugs woven from discarded fabric. People everywhere are donating materials, their time and their completed rag rugs. It takes roughly 10 hours to complete one rug hence attending all three sessions is required to complete your rug.
Come and join this bold cross-country cultural project, make and contribute your rag rug by working over the three sessions in a small group on the balcony at EH.
