Seeding the Cloud Treasury Gardens Melbourne

I recently presented Seeding The Cloud at CraftVictoria (as part of their Craft Cubed exhibition Material and extended an invitation for the public to participate in learning the process. We went out for a walk and ended up finding an incredible resource of plastic fragments in Treasury Gardens. It came as quite a surprise as the park appearsto be well maintained, however in amongst the mulch we found heaps. It would appear that
plastic is mixed in with the material that is put through the mulcher, such a pity, a bit of preliminary sorting could prevent this form of pollution from happening.

Anyhow, we managed to have a lovely time
walking, collecting, sorting and drilling in the park and mov
ed on to a cafe to thread the fragments together while having coffee and cake.
