Speaking in Colour — Handwoven Raffia Turtle



A take-home hand-woven raffia turtle from Speaking In Colour’s newly commissioned Project Space installation ‘Cultural Flo.’

Each turtle is unique, and there’s an array of colours to choose from. Speaking in Colour’s presentation of woven turtles, made by Tamara Jackson, Anissa Harwood, Kristin Sheldon, Nina Ross, Lynelle Shipp and Cherie Johnson, encapsulates a traditional, embodied and slow mode of sharing knowledges and educating for ecological care.

Speaking in Colour is a collective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander educators, artists and health professionals who offer a range of innovative cultural and art workshops that embrace Aboriginal perspectives and foster powerful, positive relationships between First Nations and non-First Nations people.
