Creating CAM: A herstory in cloth and conversation

Discover the women whose vision and enterprise saw Castlemaine Art Museum grow from its grassroots conception into a celebrated gallery. This free event includes 3 origin story cloth workshops at Castlemaine Art Museum throughout the festival, alongside a shared storytelling forum event.

Join Castlemaine Art Museum’s Sarah Frazer in threading together the fascinating stories of seven women at the heart of the museum. This free event includes four sessions throughout the Australian Heritage Festival. Three story cloth workshops (part history sharing and conversation, part hand-sewing) will be held at the Castlemaine Art Museum. Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome, no sewing experience necessary. Numbers are limited so please register in advance for your preferred session time/s. Participants only need attend one session as the same information will be presented each time. The fourth session will be a shared storytelling forum that will include an overview of CAM’s herstory origins and explore the story cloth project, in which project participants will be invited to share their insights. The Shared Storytelling Forum is open to all and will be held onsite at Castlemaine Art Museum on 18 May 2023, International Museums Day.
