Thread Count

Ended — at Agency Projects & Padre Coffee

Date & Time


First Nations fibre artisans of the Top End have been threading together the stories of their ancestors for generations upon generations, with age-old techniques passing from hand to hand. An ancient and traditional craft that sees form seamlessly melded with functionality, Thread Count is a multi-media installation that shares the powerful stories of this intricate female led practice and the Master Weavers behind it.

Curated by Nina Fitzgerald, and supported by Agency Projects, the Thread Count installation brings together some of the finest woven bags and baskets from Arnhemland and the Daly River Region of the Northern Territory, considering the weaves in the context of contemporary fashion, and changing the way the uniquely Australian practice is perceived.
