Fabric celebrates the extraordinary talents of our region’s artists, designers and change-makers. We shine a light on ethically focussed practice, inspired design and resourceful living.

The variety of events provide a wonderful opportunity for you to learn and feel inspired with new knowledge.  Join us in 2021 for the final activities of the final fabric program.

At the The Old Ambulance Station, Howard Street Nambour


Fragile Gardens, an installation of an unknown future, anxious anticipations, rites of passage and dreamlike rituals. This installation invites entry into an enigmatic setting, weaving in and out of the past and present.  Catch this renowned artist's exhibition 13 march until 17 April. Opening night Saturday 13 March 2- 4 pm. Bookings essential

Coffee and Conversation

Bring your coffee, and meet Mona Ryder in conversation with Bec Mac at the Old Ambo, Nambour. The artist’s work explores themes of domesticity, gender politics and memory through her multi-media practise – a practice that spans more than 4 decades and has been exhibited widely.  Book now.
