Wahng Ngulliboo | Karridjarrkdurrkmirri | Working Together

This group exhibition celebrates a unique collaboration between two groups of Indigenous women textile artists. Earlier this year, the Bundjalung Casino Wake Up Time Group and the Kunwinjku women artists from Injalak Arts & Crafts, in Oenpelli, Arnhem land, participated in a cultural exchange, sharing culture, weaving, dying and printing techniques.

This exhibition showcases the textiles work of both groups of artists as well as some collaborative pieces created during the cultural exchange program. Stunning hand printed and naturally dyed lengths of silk, linen and cotton will be displayed, along side intricately woven fibre pieces, created from natural local materials and dyed in the respective natural dyes from each region.
