I love the things we have here in South Australia the fabulous food, wine, people and places beauty everywhere. And, for more beauty in my life, I own and operate a gorgeous little gallery called Mrs Harris Shop: www.mrsharrisshop.com.au
It also appears in decorations for ceremonial rituals and offering to gods.
With increasing awareness of the importance of the well-being of our environments and the human race, there has been a resurgence in the appreciation of ancients crafts such as basketry, as a way to tread more lightly on the planet.
Basketry SA has inherited and embraced a rich legacy of basketry knowledge and techniques and enthusiastically works to keep the craft alive.
Currently, Basketry SA members are preparing for the group's biennial exhibition.
Assemblage is a joint venture with the Friends of Urrbrae House for the 2016 Adelaide Fringe.
It's an exhibition of contemporary basketry and fibre art which brings together many of the strands of experience, skill and creative energy of each member exhibiting. Natural and man-made materials are assembled and woven and, while still retaining their own physical identity, transform into unique and personal pieces.
