The Windsor Workshop, as part of Craft Cubed Festival, draws together a collective of prominent Artists and members of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre each using fibre, thread and mixed media to communicate their stories of personal exploration and the sense of self within themselves and their community. Each piece, unique, and an example of their ever evolving creative art practice. Each that is sold will have 100% of profits being donated to the ASRC.
Presented with an embroidery hoop and fabric as their canvas, each Artist is invited to convey their "Stories of Us", and to encapsulate the stories and ideals that have fostered their 'sense of self'. It is impossible to accurately describe your self without taking into account personal roles and relationships, opinions and commentary from the people and the community around you. Whether this becomes an accurate representation of who you are will depend on the accuracy of those conversations and actions and how you interpret them yourself. Do these conversations and interactions make your sense of self better or worse? How does this affect your sense of self image and worth? Our thoughts, emotions and understanding of the world around us are constantly changing, and therefore modifying our self esteem, self image and the series of frames that are the "stories of us".
These hand crafted pieces will be available for sale online at www.thewindsorworkshop.com from August 15th with all profits being donated to the ASRC.

Exhibition open from Thursday 24 August - Saturday 26 August at The Windsor Workshop, between the hours of 10am and 3pm
