Weave a little magic into your day

Published on 07 June 2018

Melton City Council welcomes contemporary artist Chaco Kato to a three-week residency at Melton City Libraries in June.

Kato’s exhibition and workshops will kick off a series of textile programs designed to engage local families and arts and craft enthusiasts in the joy of making things with fabric, wool and yarn.

Kato’s signature medium is large-scale shelter-like installations making use of different types of string.

She has previously created work for leading arts institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, Arts Centre and Powerhouse Museum.

Chaco is inviting City of Melton residents to attend CS Gallery or Melton Library and weave their own textile work into her unique string installations.

Her large installations will be available for community participation between 8- 24 June, with free workshops available to people of all skill levels.

Free family workshops, adult workshops and DIY sessions will also be available for locals to join in. See meltonartsandculture.eventbrite.com.au to book. Bookings essential.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
