Remember back in late 2017 when the newly formed Kalumburu Photography Collective did a photoshoot with our first collection? With the help + mentorship of WA photographer Freedom Garvey, and Clare Wood from Enterprise Partnerships WA, the team recruited models, managed a budget, scouted locations, learnt about lighting, angles and editing. It's been a while - you can catch up here.
This experience led to models + photographers requesting a collection featuring Kalumburu designs and stories!
'I'd like to learn screen printing, and have clothes up for sale, I'd like Kalumburu stories on fabric, I reckon the young women would feel good about it (wearing Kalumburu designs)'
- Maria Fredericks, photographer
We took up the invitation to work with the community and returned to Kalumburu in August 2018 to facilitate a textile design workshop at the Kalumburu Strong Women's Centre.
