Jane Bodnaruk collaborates with women of the past by preserving and extending the meaning of domestically produced and utilised colourful embroideries.

For the exhibition That was Then: This is Now, Jane has reused pre-loved tray cloths as her raw canvas, using plain stitching to immortalise everyday phrases and activities of the coronavirus pandemic. 

During the pandemic, the walls of the family home became penetrated as never before with an intensity of public information bombarding our private spaces as teachers, colleagues, friends and news arrived via the internet.

This exhibition is an immersive and flowing document of an event lived substantially in the isolation of our homes. 

This event is part of the Sydney Craft Week Festival 7-16 October 2022.

SCW is an Australian Design Centre initiative. View the complete festival program.
