The Crafty Adventures Continue!
It’s time to bust out the Bernina and pull out the 8ply, as Saviours of the Lost Art (SotLA) gets ready to once again reignite crafty passions across Brisbane’s creative communities from April through to June 2013.
Social networks will be nurtured, creative development skills imparted and the sharing of age‐old craft traditions and their newest indie interpretations showcased throughout the four corners of the Brisbane City Council area.
The stars of the show will once again be Brisbane’s seniors, the custodians of the ‘lost arts’ and alongside the generations of new and emerging Brisbane indie creatives, they are set to share their given crafts with each other and the eager creatives from various suburban locations.
