Project information: Our Fibre is a creative project for 67+ students, years 6, 7, and 8. It aims to explore the concept of who we are and how we are connected, with an emphasis on well-being and how creativity can support us to tell our stories and practise mindfulness. Students will explore their cultural identity, local environment, contemporary symbolism, and create artworks with the end goal of sharing our project in a community artspace.

The key guiding concepts for this project include:

  • slow stitching for mindfulness
