discarded fishing nets and fabrics.

I make baskets with the pandanus. We go out with the old ladies, collect some pandanus and the colours. I always work with the pandanus the old ways... The old ladies, they were doing this a long, long time ago with the old ways. - JEANELLE

The art of bush dyeing is a practice that draws on ancient
knowledge of Country. Artists collect different roots, leaves,
barks and berries from the surrounding bush, before binding
them to a piece of fabric. The fabric is then boiled over a fire
where it transforms into a beautiful reflection of the land.

I’m happy when I'm talking and telling my story. I started learning bush dyes from my grandmother, I used to have my grandmother on one side teaching me how. She was doing the baskets from the start when I was five years old. When I was 12 and 13 years old, I started making baskets. - ANNABELL
