Stories and Weaving with Janine McAullay Bott

Saturday 20 March, 2pm-3pm


Join Noongar artist Janine McAullay Bott as she demonstrates her weaving process and shares stories behind the artworks she creates.

McAullay Bott will discuss her work and practice, including pieces like Kangaroo and Joey, currently on view in the Berndt Museum exhibition Creatures: Ochred, Pokered, Carved and Twined. In addition, her piece Quokka Roger, Racket and Ball (2018) has been acquired for the Wadjeump Museum Collection on Rottnest Island where it is currently exhibited until November 2021.


Creatures: Ochred, Pokered, Carved & Twined

Creatures: Ochred, Pokered, Carved and Twined delves into the depths of the Berndt Museum of Anthropology’s object collection, illuminating a diverse menagerie of animal representations from across Indigenous Australia. The exhibition showcases over 100 years of creation practices by Indigenous Australian peoples, for whom the creatures of the land, water and sky were, are, and forever will be, deeply ingrained in their culture and beliefs.

Presented by the Berndt Museum of Anthropology.


Please note: due to Covid-19 safety precautions, registration is essential for this event and space is limited.
