Patches from the People,  Please.

Mystery Community Project

An Extension of the Rags to Riches Project

There is a scent of Mystery in the air at the moment. A fresh scent. A seed has been planted, and a mystery vine is going to grow amongst communities surrounding the Ravensthorpe Shire. Lets water that vine, and see what Mystery reveals itself.

Once loved fabrics. A hanky with a happy memory? An old beach bag from the Endless Summer of '66? Did you measure once and cut twice to ruin a vintage piece? Consider contributing to Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Councils Mystery Community Project. We have an idea, a big idea. A large scale mystery textiles project will come to life, and we need Patches from the People, please. All are welcome to participate.

Textile patches may be any shape or size up to 1m x 1m. Your patchwork piece will be utilized and exhibited as part of a large scale mystery project. Fabrics may be decorated any way you choose including; traditional patch working, painting, embellishing, drawing, or just a pretty piece that you would like to see included.
Patches will be required by the 2nd of September. The Mystery Project unveiling and sew-a-thon for the construction of the project will be held at Hopetoun Community Centre 3rd and 4th of September. BYO sewing machine.

The project will be exhibited at the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show from September 13th to 24th, and who knows where it will pop up next?

Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council receives core funding from Country Arts WA, which receives funding from the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts and Lotterywest.
