Weaving the Waterways

Weaving the Waterways: Women and Fishing 
Koorie Heritage Trust
Guest Curator Glenda Nicholls
Netmaking came to Glenda Nicholls from her ancestors in a vision and has inspired this exhibition of river-life, featuring baskets, ochre nets, scoop nets, fishing lines, hooks and bird nets.

The works demonstrate a continuous and evolving link with techniques passed down through generations of Aboriginal women living in and around South-East Australian waterways.
While drawn from functional design, the objects are imbued with a deep cultural significance beyond the practical, weaving a connection across the generations of women still living on river country.

Artists: Glenda Nicholls, Clair Bates, Donna Blackall, Deanne Gilson, Georgia MacGuire, and Bronwyn Razem.
