T-SHIRT PROJECT | Pilbara Fashion Festival

Pilbara Fashion Festival – T-Shirt Project

The Junction Co., managers of the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery+Studio, are hosting the 2021 Pilbara Fashion Festival (26 March – 28 May) to provide opportunities of learning and engagement for our regional community. The theme of the festival is consumption and renewal, with feature exhibitions, markets, workshops and a final community gala runway event.

T-Shirt Project Opportunity

As part of the Pilbara Fashion Festival’s Maker’s Market, a large scale public art installation will highlight the festival’s theme, whilst giving the participants an opportunity to be part of a dynamic project.

The Junction Co are seeking the youth of the Pilbara to manipulate a T-shirt, using two different dyeing and colouring techniques, to create a unique pattern on each garment. The vision is to create a mass number of T-shirts for the installation, which will be showcased in proximity to the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery+Studio.

Project Proposal

School’s are invited to book their students into a session with Project artist and facilitator, Jane McGowan. She will guide the students to learn about the chosen dyeing and colouring technique, and each student will manipulate and upcycle a plain Tshirt garment.
