IN THE REGIONS
Going with the Flow – Batik on Thursday Island
Flying Arts facilitator Scott Maxwell was excited to bring the traditional Javanese technique of batik to First NationS artists on the remote and stunning Thursday Island in the Torres Strait.
The workshop was attended by local artists from Waiben (Thursday Island), plus the surrounding islands of Keriri (Hammond) and Badu (Mulgrave) and Erub (Darnley) as well as Bamaga on the mainland.
Tina Baum, the curator from the National Gallery of Australia, also called in to see what the artists were doing. She later remarked to Scott that the participants’ body of work was some of the very best fabric designs she had seen!
The work of four artists – all Flying Arts members – is currently on show in our Flying Arts’ Featured Artists at the Judy: Winter Exhibition. The exhibition, which will be on display until May 25, features small-scale artworks displayed on plinths in the foyer of the Judith Wright Centre.
We had a chat to the artists about their work! Learn more about:

- Nicola Hooper (Logan)
- Ann Russell (Cashmere)
- Peta Lloyd (Coowonga)
