60,000 Years in the Making – A Practitioner’s Yarn-up at Museum of Arts and Applied Sciences

A full day yarn-up showcasing the approaches and techniques of four Australian Aboriginal women whose work brings traditional cultural practices into contemporary contexts.

In each session the artisans will share their knowledge and provide a window to new ways of thinking about how we can engage with, sustain and re-position skills that have been in development for over 60,000 years. For more information and bookings visit the website.

Details: Saturday 14 October, 10am – 4pm
