Learn a variety of weaving practices that embody storytelling and knowledge sharing.
This workshop explores techniques of weaving, including woven sculptures made from repurposed twine, raffia, bamboo and emu feathers.
Kim Ah Sam is a Kuku Yalanji and Kalkadoon woman whose art practice is based around her cultural and spiritual identity. An abiding theme of her work is investigating ways of spiritually, reconnecting with her father’s country, the Kalkadoon. Kim works across drypoint, etching, weaving, printmaking and paper making. Kim’s weaving process is often collaborative, involving storytelling and knowledge-sharing, a practice which is deeply embedded in First Nations communities Australia-wide. Kim has recently shown at Milani Gallery, Vivian Andersen Gallery, the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair at Cairns Regional Art Gallery, and has recently undertaken a residency at the Brisbane Museum. Her work is held in the collection at the Museum of Brisbane, QUT and recent public artwork includes projects in Ipswich City Council and Rio Tinto.
