Fabric Printing with Bábbarra Design
In celebration of Blak Design Matters, our national design survey – in a one off event we are bringing down members of the Babbarra Womens Group from Arnhem Land for a lino printing on textiles workshop.
Join the women in Hand printing designs on fabric using the linocut pressing technique, you can choose to print onto a tote bag, tea towel, cushion cover or a length of fabric.
Bábbarra Design are women from more than 12 language groups in the Maningrida region in Arnhem Land who come together at Bábbarra to share their knowledge and ideas. They design and hand-print textiles that are sold around Australia and the world. Each length of fabric is unique and tells the ancestral stories of their Arnhem Land country and cultures. The designs tell the stories of their lives and bring a lot of joy to everyone – their families and customers alike.
