Tales from the Woods was an artistic residency for Hobson’s Bay City Council at the Woods Street Arts Space over 12 weeks from September to December 2015.
Every Friday I worked at a desk in the foyer of Woods St making soft sculptures and other crafted objects based on fairy tales from Laverton’s diverse communities.
I invited people to come visit me and share their favourite fairy story or myth or post me a fairy tale on a post card. All the tales on cards went up in the window of the space as did the soft sculptures themselves.
And the wonderful artist Barek joined me for a day during the residency.
