  7. Hello,
    I am cleaning out my archives and came across about 20 slides/transparencies sent to me by Robyn Malcolm, a well-known WA designer/maker in the 1980s/90s. (I used to have a designer craft outlet in the late ’80s/early ’90s). I could throw them out – they are slides of her work – but they might constitute a useful historical record.

    Any clue as to where I could possibly send them?
    Grateful for your advice,
    Diana Kostyrko

    1. Thanks for this Ingrid. We certainly hope to extend the map to the Blue Mountains in the future. Do let us know if there’s someone we can work with there to do this.

  8. Greetings of the day!
    I have completed my graduation in Textile Design recently. I have always been had keen interest in working with traditional crafts. Would like to know how can I be a member of WCCA. Looking forward to a positive reply for the same, so that I can share my CV and portfolio with you.

    1. You can find details about membership in the menu on your left. We represent Australian crafts. Check out the Sangam Project Facebook group for Indian crafts.

  9. Just wondering how often the fee of $25 should be charged. I paid $25 in December last year and then $25 4/2/22. Is this correct or is it a yearly donation.
    cheers Jane at Zu design

  10. I was wondering if my gallery is suitable to be listed, and how?
    BAROMETER Gallery is an artist run exhibition space.
    With an emphasis on fibre arts, as well as showcasing photography and jewellery. Apart from its role as an exhibition space for hire to textile and craft artists, Barometer also initiates exhibitions from time to time in an effort to address ideas and create dialogue about craft and art and the object making processes.

  11. Im not sure if my business is appropriate for the Australian Craft map. I am a textile conservator and I do work with alot of Australian textiles both contemporary and antique. I also work with contemporary First Nations Screen Print fabrics. Please add me to the map if you think I fit the criteria.

  12. Mary White who was an advisor to the Crafts Council of Australia in the early 1970s in Central Australia. I have seen 1912-1981 as her dates of birth and death, but question whether this DoD is accurate. Do you know anything of Mary’s life please?

  13. Hello,
    I work for The Ian Potter Cultural Trust, a Philanthropic Arts Trust that awards Emerging Artist Grants for individuals to undertake professional development. The Trust funds artists working in all disciplines, including craft.

    We want to increase our applications and support of emerging craft practitioners, so I am reaching out in case this opportunity can be shared with the Craft Council Network. Please see further details in the link provided, and get in touch if you have any questions.

    Kind regards,
