Threads Of Footscray

BluScray celebrates the West through needlepoint

9th - 29th January 2017

Threads Of Footscray
Threads of Footscray is a community project to create needlepoint artworks as part of BluScray, a celebration of 100 years of education in Footscray. Sponsored by Highpoint Shopping Centre and Victoria University, the project has been produced in collaboration with Jessie Deane, a renowned local artist who has curated and mentored community members in producing needlepoint artworks.

This project brought together different communities, artists and crafters to create needlepoint artworks, focusing on how blue threads through the diverse landscapes of Footscray. From the natural environments of Newels Paddock to the industrialised factories and containers on the horizon, all hold their own beauty and are intrinsic parts of the experience of Footscray.

The completed work was displayed at VU at MetroWest in December as a legacy of Victoria University’s Centenary celebration, and will be on show at Highpoint on Level 3 near Witchery until 29 January.
