Weaving Eucalypts Project Liz Williamson – Wangaratta Art Gallery (Vic)
February 24 - April 14Free
This collaborative project by weaver Liz Williamson explores local colour, cultural connections, and shared weaving traditions. In 2020, Williamson began inviting colleagues in Australia and India to colour fabric with eucalyptus leaves collected locally. Once received in her studio, Williamson wove the fabric into panels referencing the traditions of woven rag rugs.
Since 2021, the project has expanded to connect with more colleagues in Australia and India as well as other countries touched by the Indian Ocean – Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Thailand. Extending from Williamson’s research into Australian natural dye plants, the Weaving Eucalypts Project features 100 panels woven by Williamson with fabric dyed by 60 collaborators with over 50 eucalypts species identified and sourced from over 50 locations.
