QAGOMA Kids on Tour | Island Fashion


Rockhampton Art Gallery is delighted to present ‘Island Fashion on Tour’, a Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) regional touring project for children and families.

‘Island Fashion on Tour’ features a range of free, hands-on art making activities created by QAGOMA in collaboration with Australian and Pacific artists Grace Lillian Lee, Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James and Letila Mitchell.

Grace Lillian Lee’s activity GET YOUR WEAVE ON 2019 encourages audiences to use simple folding techniques with strips of brightly coloured paper to create wearable accessories such as paper bracelets, neckpieces and head-pieces.

While Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James’ activity ULA TAIM 2019 encourages the creation of elaborate neckpieces, wristbands and anklets using hand-drawn patterns and weaving with paper.

Letila Mitchell’s activity SASI, PERA, LAGI – OF THE OCEAN, LAND AND SKY invites children to create their own textile design using patterns created by the artist.

‘Island Fashion on Tour’ continues until February 2020.
