Garland continues its journey to the places behind the objects we make. Issue #2 features a quarterly essay by Gopika Nath about a remarkable textile that threads the tumultuous history of modern India.
Garland spends time in Adelaide, renowned for its craft production, learning about the life-story of the Kink, a craft classic from the JamFactory, the legendary Gate 8 as the inaugural Workshops of the World, reflections on the craft revival by academic Susan Luckman and ceramicist Damon Moon and Guildhouse’s marvellous Traditional Crafts program.
Garland also takes a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the Adelaide Biennial, exploring the making processes and journeys of Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Louise Haselton, Jacqui Stockdale and Heather B. Swann.
And much more, including all you ever wanted to know about wearing a turban.
Garland is an online platform for thoughtful writing about handmade objects in our world. The longform essays are available to subscribers, whose support enables commissioned pieces that honour the value of well-crafted objects today.
