Threatened Species Collaborative Quilt
Textile is now on display at Wildbark (Mulligans Flat Nature Sanctuary visitor centre) alongside some of my mini ‘quilts’ made for the Remnants exhibition from 2018.
During 2023 I worked with Australian collaborators to make a patched quilt highlighting threatened species of the Australian National Territory (A.C.T.). The ‘quilt’ and corresponding book was presented to the ACT Government (Minister Vassarotti – Minster for the Environment) on September 7th in recognition of Threatened Species Day. Presentation and afternoon tea was be held at The Link, Gininderry where the quilt was displayed until December 2023. My thanks to Ginninderry and Tom Gray who wholeheartedly supported this project. Thanks also to Vinnies (Canberra and Goulburn) and The Green Shed for their generous donation of materials. Many thanks for the energy and creativity of all collaborators.
