When I arrived at Ikuntji artists for this workshop, we hadn’t prepared anything whatsoever. It’s when I got there, after a few words with Chrischona, the centre manager, that our project was born. Ikuntji artists has a superb collection of paintings, and there was in the reserve of the nearby shop a container full of old sneakers. It all went smoothly from there: asking artists to reproduce their paintings on sneakers. So I chose from the paintings the ones that would work best on baskets, and there we had our project. Alice, Alison, Patricia, Patrick, Gordon and Keturah all went to work making their little wonders. The images speak for themselves.
Many thanks to Chrischona and to all the artists who participated in the project.
