In late May Milingimbi Art and Culture had a big week with Master weavers, Mavis Ganambarr, Margaret Dhorrpuy, and Judy Manany Gurruwiwi from Elcho Island came to begin a collaboration on a large scale weaving project for Koskela Designs. Sasha Titchkosky and Harriet Goodall from Koskela came to Milingimbi to initiate this exciting project which will have long term creative and economic benefits for our artists.
The partnership with Koskela allows our artists to collaborate with Koskela designers and use their traditional skills to create contemporary design products. Our first project together is a set of three large scale pods made from Gunga (pandanus) and Balgurr (bush string) woven onto a light metal frame.
Koskela is a Sydney based furniture design company which believes that great design can be used to effect social change. Koskela is committed to working with artists on projects which are sustainable and meaningful.
