Cultural Threads is a new and exciting celebration of textile art and cultural diversity hosted by the City of Greater Dandenong.
From knitting to crocheting, dyeing to weaving, needlepoint to yarn art, this month-long program of events and activities invites people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in a variety of textile-based initiatives guided by some of Victoria’s and Australia’s most celebrated artists.
Through the medium of textiles, people are encouraged to connect with one another, trade skills, share stories and interweave cultures.
Events will be held at multiple venues across Greater Dandenong including Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre, Heritage Hill Museum and Historic Gardens, Dandenong Market, Dandenong Library and the Civic Square.
In addition, intricate and colourful installations will adorn central Dandenong for the duration of the event.
