Radical craft and subversive cross-stitch

This event has finished

Rayna Fahey is trying to change people's opinions of arts and craft. Taking ugly scenarios and making them beautiful with cross-stitch, Fahey has a unique and fresh approach to what are commonly known as the 'domestic arts'.

Founder of the Melbourne Revolutionary Craft Cartel, Fahey makes political statements and puts them in city and suburban settings. Her use of cross-stitch is not just for pretty decorative item: as each one comes with a message.

A screening of her documentary Making it Handmade will be shown at the gallery with director Anna Brownfield also attending, on Thursday 19 April at 7pm. At the same time, 'Hatchlings', a large bronze piece covering both the walls and the floor, will be installed in the gallery. Ewen Coats has created an interesting and thought-provoking work, the Atrium Project's second piece.
