Textile Project and Hat Challenge

Last night's viewing of the pieces prepared for the Melville Community Textile Art Project was amazing. There were over 130 pieces of textile art on display and many people spoke about how they became involved in the project and what their participation had meant to them. While most of the pieces had the name of the maker attached, there were five sets that had been made by a group of Nyoongar women who did not wish individual bits to be attributed to any one person. Apparently these pieces will be joined together and flow over the finished panels in the form of the Wagyl (Dreamtime Rainbow Serpent). This is one of the sets.

I took along my challenge hat and gave it to Iris for the display during Artopia.
