Mundaring Arts Centre | Cultivating Slow-Making | Artist Talk & Tour
Slow-making is a practice rooted in long-term relationships with craftsmanship. It involves nurturing connections with people, materials, and skills while caring for the environment. Cultivation encompasses skilful preparation, growth, and improvement of various aspects. It entails nurturing relationships between individuals, nature, and soil. Cultivators learn about local environments, optimize conditions for thriving, and communicate knowledge. Slow-making artists are mentors, facilitators, and agents of social change.
Seven of the ten Cultivating Slow-Making artists are Western Australian Fibre & Textile Association (WAFTA) members. To celebrate slow making and the creation of textile and fibre art within the community, exhibiting artists Annette Nykiel (Curator), Martien van Zuilen, and Deidre Robb share their stories in a public tour of the exhibition.
After the tour, join the artists and Members of WAFTA for a discussion of textile practice over afternoon tea as part of the WAFTA Member’s gathering.
This is a free event, but bookings are essential (though WAFTA).
