Current Exhibition

un-Contained: An exhibition of fibre art by Lissa-Jane de Sailles

30 May - 1 July 2019

This exhibition explores the use of traditional weft twining techniques in the construction of two dimensional circular sculptural forms. ‘un-Contained’ is a colourful and playful experiment in colour, texture and the use of traditional basketry techniques. Most of the works are inspired by natural phenomena encountered during a six week basketry study tour of the USA in 2017. The title ‘Uncontained’ plays with the notion of using basketry techniques for making objects other than traditional utilitarian containers.

 

PUBLIC PROGRAM:

Basketry Demonstration 12-2 pm 18 June 2019 Hutley Hall, North Sydney Council Level 1, 200 Miller Street, North Sydney

Join South Coast Fibre Artist, Lissa de Sailles for a demonstration in two dimensional weaving without a loom. Visitors are welcome to come and try to learn the basics of this ancient craft. All welcome, no bookings required & free to attend Enquiries: Arts & Culture Officer on 9936 8100 artsandculture@northsydney.nsw.gov.au
