Craft was founded in 1970 at a meeting of artists, curators, writers, and established as a not-for-profit arts organisation dedicated to supporting and celebrating contemporary Australian craft and design. More than 45 years on, we are still committed to supporting local makers through our retail and exhibition spaces, public and professional development programs.
This collection and window exhibition present a collaboration between award winning Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander artist Lisa Waup, Melbourne-based Fashion Designer Ingrid Verner and Craft. Supported by Creative Victoria and showcased as part of VAMFF, Design Week and Global Indigenous Runway, the collection embodies Waup's graphic visual and woven artwork, exploring themes of connection, identity and country.
