Qantas Founders Museum is delighted to present ‘Island Fashion on Tour’, a Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) regional touring project for children and families in January 2020.

‘Island Fashion on Tour’ features a range of free, hands-on art making activities created by QAGOMA in collaboration with Australian and Pacific artists Grace Lillian Lee, Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James and Letila Mitchell.

Grace Lillian Lee’s activity GET YOUR WEAVE ON 2019 encourages audiences to use simple folding techniques with strips of brightly coloured paper to create wearable accessories such as paper bracelets, neckpieces and head-pieces.

While Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James’ activity ULA TAIM 2019 encourages the creation of elaborate neckpieces, wristbands and anklets using hand-drawn patterns and weaving with paper.

Letila Mitchell’s activity SASI, PERA, LAGI – OF THE OCEAN, LAND AND SKY invites children to create their own textile design using patterns created by the artist.

Qantas Founders Museum will hold four FREE activities running for an hour from 9:30am -10.30am during the school holiday period. The dates are as follows:

Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 January 2020


Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 January 2020

 Please call 0746583737 or email info@qfom.com to book your children in for the QAGOMA Island Fashion on Tour activities! These sessions will be FREE to attend. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
