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.

This is the third and final year of our fabric program. The variety of events provide a wonderful opportunity for you to learn and feel inspired with new knowledge.

Throughout September, come along to the Arts and Ecology Centre at the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden to enjoy:

  • Sustainable Costings for Artisans
  • Dyeing fabric with botanicals from your garden
  • Join the Open Studio and Artist Talk with Anne Harris
  • View the Botanical Colourings 2020 Exhibition
  • Watch the botanical colouring demonstrations: Natural Textile Dyeing and Patterning.
