The Workshops

Having experienced fibre artists facilitating workshops in remote communities was the key to encouraging local artisans to take up the medium.

GhostNets Australia sponsored in excess of twenty ghost net art workshops over a period of four years, commencing in Aurukun in 2009. Locations were as widespread as Darnley Island in the east and South Goulburn Island, NT, in the west. As a result of these workshops indigenous ghost net art began appearing in galleries and art fairs around Australia.
