‘Local and available’ is the inspiration for current and past weaving projects. Within subtropical Brisbane, palm inflorescence and banana trunks are in abundance. Native grasses and rushes are available within any environment, while lavender and New Zealand flax are at their best in the southern climes! The opportunity to recycle often simply requires a shift in perspective!
