I’m posting this from Katherine, in the Northern Territory. The Internet is a bit slow in the outback so will add links when I’m better connected!

I’m on holidays for a month (all of August) in the Northern Territory.

I’m heading to Katherine in an hour or so for Barthula Webs; an artists weekend. There will be art and indigenous craft workshops - including a shibori workshop, using natural local dyes from the bush.

More photos and posts to come as my travels continue.

Brooklyn based designer, artist and textile-maker Rebecca Atwood’s approach to the centuries-old Japanese shibori technique.


Inspired by the ever-changing underwater life, Portland-based multidisciplinary artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann creates a breathtaking jellyfish aquarium, titled ‘Underwater Flight’ in a place where you least expect it, the Portland International Airport. Continuing her exploration of the way light is reflected on different mediums, Sayuri experiments with colored organza, wool felting fibers and silk to build this magical underwater kingdom.  

This installation is part of ‘Urban Aquarium’, an ongoing project that aims to “create a dialogue between viewers about context and displacement and about the unexpected.” | via http://inspir3d.net/2012/08/19/underwater-flight-by-sayuri-sasaki-hemann/

I’ve been traveling in the Northern Territory for the past couple of weeks.

Even managed to fit in some shibori dyeing!

I have limited Internet access so my posts are limited too; while up in the NT, Australia.

I’m off to Arnhem Land for two weeks with extremely limited Internet so will post again when I am back.
