"Craft connects us" - Samorn Sanixay on Weaving, Multiculturalism & What We Have in Common
Manage episode 353421168 series 2151306
On the surface, this is the story of Samorn Sanixay’s epic adventure to map Australia through a colour study of its natural eucalyptus dyes. Last year, she set out to do just that, spending a year travelling around the country collecting leaves from these wonderfully diverse trees wherever she went.
But that's just the starting point of this feel-good interview with the natural dyes expert and co-founder of artisanal weaving studio Eastern Weft in Vientiane.
Ultimately, this is a conversation about belonging, forming friendships and connections to country, and the idea that we have more in common than we think.
