‘Coming Into The Light’ is the fruition of a two and a half year journey exploring the public and the private. It’s a mysterious dance between what feels safe to show and what we hold protectively close. The journey has been its richest when suspended in play and I witness the work evolve before me.
I can’t dictate the pace. My job is simply to turn up. Once I shrug off the need for an outcome or hurry, I can relax into seeing and feeling. It’s as though I can see more clearly in this space… there’s a clarity that isn't available when I’m in my head or attached.
These are the spaces within the universe where something else dips in and colours all.
These too are the in between spaces that we struggle to sit amongst and yet here seems to be the greatest peace.


Sarah will also be teaching WEAVING WORKSHOPS on select dates.

Learn a wonderful new skill, weaving bangalow palm inflorescence into beautiful sculptures! 

BOOK NOW -  there are only 4 spots in each session! 

$90 per person (materials provided & ready to use!)

This class is all about play and experimentation. You will learn through your hands, a deeper connection with nature and also your creativity. You'll leave with your very own sculptural creation using the natural fibre of Bangalow Palm inflorescence.

Random weaving is an ancient basketry technique where experimentation is key as is play. There are no right moves, it's all about feel and sensing.

At the end of the experience, you will have not only a sculptural piece and a deeper understanding of nature's creations but most deliciously, an exploration of your own creativity.

All materials will be supplied for you to simply come and play. 

To make sure you're safe and I'm safe, there will be only 4 attendees.
