Not quite sure how I landed in this project. Visiting my friends who make up a group of textiles artists called "Broadstrokes" - for lunch & to say Farewell to Kate who was going OS - then Tricia Smout arrived to talk about her Artist in Residence stint at the Mt Coot-tha Bontanical Gardens http://www.triciasmout.blogspot.com.au/ Next thing I know, this group of six 'friends' have roped in their 3 guests & we are taking part in this collaborative work with Tricia. We each make 3 bundles - one to hang in the Gardens, one in our own garden & one to be buried.
Mine has tea-tree bark, onion skins, newspaper, a couple of different fabrics, lace & crepe paper wrapped up with beetroot-dyed calico.
I have tied mine into a bundle - others have loosely tied theirs together. Not sure if mine is too tight to allow any disintergration - time will tell .
Hanging in our garden - next to the Cycad that has seven new fronds - it looks magnificient.
