A Place with a History and a Future

Mitchell Park Storytelling Project – Mitchell Park Sports & Community Centre, Adelaide

Created by Donna Gordge and the Mitchell Park community in 2022, this 14-panel textile piece incorporates cyanotype printing, block printing, coil basketry, screen printing, polychromatic printing, shibori dyeing, fabric manipulation and sashiko stitching in a community storytelling textile artwork.

Themes of the work are taken from stories collected as part of the project, and acknowledge the natural and built environment, industry, employment and community of Mitchell Park.
