Kim has been weaving for over twenty years and shares her knowledge of local and introduced fibre harvest, preparation and use, coil and wrap techniques, rattan and vine basketry, twining, cordage, random weave, natural dyes and more with warmth and patience.
Kim holds a deep respect of traditional cultures and has a strong connection to the Indigenous people of the Northern Rivers.
With respect, Kim acknowledges the traditional custodians of the country she lives and works on, past present and emerging.
Over the past two decades, Kim has studied techniques under the guidance of master weavers from Indigenous communities in Australia, Solomon Islands and Bali and continues to collaborate with a network of traditional weavers.
Our woven lamp shades are designed by Shack Palace in collaboration with Kim and hand woven by Kim inspired by indigenous fish trap making trap making techniques.
