In celebration of IOTA21’s exhibition Curiosity & Rituals of the Everyday, FAC is inviting you to get crafty this Spring with Crafternoons, a fun afternoon of craft and conversation in FAC’s Inner Courtyard.

Designed to bring together practitioners, makers and the crafting community – with a special guest artist in attendance every week – Crafternoons is an opportunity to meet other crafters, share stories, and develop your projects surrounded by friends and fellow makers.

Whether you are a weaver, an embroiderer, a woodworker, or a knitter, bring your projects, your communities and crafting circles, and join us as we share and celebrate the everyday rituals of contemporary craft.

Friday 24 Sep: Sharyn Egan

For our very first Crafternoon, join Noongar painter, weaver and sculptor Sharyn Egan, who is exhibiting in IOTA21’s Curiosity & Rituals of the Everyday. Sharyn works in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture and woven forms using traditional and contemporary fibres. Her woven works include traditionally styled contemporary forms and baskets, as well as sculptural forms often based on flora and fauna that has totemic significance for the Noongar people. Her work is often informed by her experience as a member of the Stolen Generation, and the associated trauma and displacement experienced by Aboriginal people.
