This will be a fascinating showing of indigenous articles
Bibbullmun Bardi Exploring Aboriginal Design celebrates the seldom-told stories of some of Western Australia's Aboriginal design icons.


The West Australian Aboriginal design history is both interesting and unique. At this event, you will be able to see how contemporary Western Australian Aboriginal designers incorporate their cultural practices and perspectives to today's world.

Each garment has a story, and this story is shared through clothing, accessories, sketches, samples, photographs, interviews and more! While you look at these wonderful Aboriginal Designs, you can also hear all about the little told stories of some of these WA designers.

Exploring Aboriginal Design will be on from 9th August until 30th September 2018 and will be held at The Nook, State Library of Western Australia, 25 Francis Street.

It is a free event and it will be held from Monday to Thursday, 9:00 am to 8:00 pm; Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm; and Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm.

It is brought to you by the Western Australian State Library and AARLI Fashions.

Marnin Studios
The Marnin Studio was established in 2013. It is a therapeutic arts enterprise that supports women and helps them to turn the things they love to do into projects. By thus doing, they can receive a source of income.

Products from Marnin Studio are contemporary in design. They are based in the women's deep knowledge of the local environment, culture and community.

Their knowledge is seen throughout their designs and the process of connecting to country provides the opportunity for local women to connect with language, stories and memories.

Here, the artists create "block and screen prints" as well as handmade dyes which are then used to produce a range of fascinating textile designs on silk, cotton, linen and wool.

The artists from this studio who will be showing their goods include:

Nita Willams
Phyllis Waye
April Jones
June Smith

Other artists from Mangkaja Art Centre include the following:

Bruce Wiggan
Ron Gidgup
Francine Kickett
Sally Bin Denim
Lilla Gagliano
TJ Cowlishaw
