Artwork in Silk YARNS

Description

Description

" A story woven around a valley” Yarns is a large scale community art project of four quilted, soft sculpture silk panels, one for each season, drawing you into the landscapes and lifestyles of the Meander Valley people.

Yarns was created by more than 300 community members using numerous hand working techniques.

Yarns is housed in a purpose built auditorium at Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre in Deloraine, Tasmania.

An audio presentation with lighting effects provides information about what the panels depict and how they were made. The audio provides regional history and interesting facts about the Great Western Tiers. After the presentation Yarns can be browsed at leisure providing opportunities to further discover the beauty of Yarns Artwork in Silk.

Glimpse the townsfolk enjoying the Meander River and the Deloraine township under the protection of Quamby Bluff on the Spring panel. Feel the sunshine on the faces of folk chatting over the farm fence and riding a hay cart on the Summer panel. Roam the hillsides and admire the majesty of the Tiers and villages on the Autumn panel. Crisp mountain pools and dark caves shelter a Thylacine family and numerous other native animals on the Winter panel.
