Dandenong Patterns

by Sayraphim on August 16, 2016

Dandenong Patterns was a guerrilla kindness work inspired by historic architectural details found in and around the Greater Dandenong Area, presented at the Cultural Threads festival throughout August, 2016 in Dandenong.

The public sent me photos of wrought iron fences, stained glass windows, wooden gables, plaster corbels, mosaicked paths and other small house or building features, which were used to create the embroideries for the project. These photos went on display in the window box facing Thomas St outside the Dandenong Library as part of the festival

Finished embroideries were framed and placed around the streets of Greater Dandenong in two co-ordinated ‘drops’ for people to find and take home.
