Embracing the Familiar by Rebecca Mayo


Thank you for your interest in registering for Embracing the Familiar by Rebecca Mayo. After you register a project kit will be posted to you with everything you need to take a rubbing of a tree that you love or that interests you. When you send the rubbings, plus a handful of leaves or bark, that you collect from the tree back to us, they will be translated to cloth using screen-print & natural dye processes & will form part of an exhibition in 2021 at Tuggeranong Arts Centre.

Each project kit will contain: Instructions, an index card for you to write a statement or story about your chosen tree on, a small bag for the collected leaves or bark, an oil pastel, paper for the rubbing and a return addressed stamped envelope.

Each kit will have enough paper for a tree girth of up to 10m. If your chosen tree is wider than 10m you can order an extra kit or get in contact with the TAC directly via the link below.

If you would like to order multiple kits for a group of people (eg: more than 5) please contact the TAC via the link below.

We also ask that you only order what you intend to use.
