Mudul-ma Creation Station
Mudul-ma Community Art Room, DCA
2/1 Travers Street, Coconut Grove
Every Friday from 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm our Mudul-ma Community Art Room at DCA will be open for you to bring in a creative project you are working on or start a new one.
You are welcome to work self-directed or if you would like some more support, our facilitator Nel will be available. She has a broad range of experience with a particular passion for textile art.
Each month we will also offer a guided activity, kicking off on the 29th of September with visible mending. Nel (Penelope Anne Johnson) will demonstrate the skills you need to get started and we will provide the thread, needles and patterns. Just bring along a garment or piece of fabric that you wish to mend.
Visible mending is repair work that is deliberately made visible; the repair is turned into a feature of the clothing. There will be a demonstration of a variety of different stitches including sashiko based patterns.
What to bring
An old garment or fabric piece that you love and wish to repair or your own creative project to work on.

Our new name
Mudul-ma is a Larrakia word meaning mangrove forest & is the title of the mural by Cyan Sue Lee and Mikayla Lee at Unit 2. Nadine, Mikayla & Cyan have given permission for the word to be used as a venue name to pay homage to Larrakia Country.
