Listen. Watch. Wonder. Feel. Play.
Through a creative workshop led by multidisciplinary artist Julia Gutman and primary school educator Julia Milwidsky, Art Cubs will explore waterways and weaving in the creation of a collaborative mark-making installation using recycled textiles and fibres.
Children aged 0-5 years, parents, carers and friends will be led on a tour of the 23rd Biennale of Sydney then get hands on with multi-sensory components whilst considering our relationship with our clothes, our environment and our communities.
Did you know that on average 10,000-20,000 litres of water are required to cultivate just one kilogram of raw cotton? Our clothes tell stories. They are an everyday art-form that we carry with us through the world; but global production, particularly of fast fashion, is exploiting the labour of whole communities, polluting our rivers, filling our landfills and using a tremendous amount of water.
Children and their families/carers are encouraged to bring an old textile of their choice to be included in the installation.
