Woven Folly

After working with Patrick Dougherty  on “The Ballroom” at Federation Square in Melbourne,

I teamed up with Gay Chatfield to create our own Woven Folly for the Yarra Glen Art Show.

This installation was made possible by funding by Regional Arts Victoria and the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

2 weeks
weaving
7 trailers loads of willow
sourced from Melbourne water, who are clearing  the water ways of what is now a noxious weed.

The community loves it.
We got so many positive comments……

Patrick gave us his blessing to build what he called “The Hair Extension”
