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.
I’m doing a shibori workshop tomorrow with talented textile artist, Kerryn Taylor. More info at barthulawebs.com 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!
Gorgeous sunset at Darwin Harbor, Northern Territory, Australia. 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.
