Wulbung (Basket)

5cm x 21cm x 18cm

2020

Bold, bright and brilliant. Madulu makes her colourful coils from abandoned fishing lines, known as ghost nets, that wash up on Numbulwar’s shores.

Ghost nets account for about 40% of all ocean plastic. Numbulwar baskets divert this plastic away from the oceans, keeping nets clear of vulnerable sea life.

Each basket is a unique piece, so pop this planet-saver in your cart before it disappears.

Numbulwar Numburindi Arts

Weaving Culture and Community

 

BUILT ON SELF-DETERMINATION, NUMBULWAR NUMBURINDI ARTS (NNA) IS AN ARTIST COLLECTIVE WHOSE MISSION IS TO KEEP CULTURE STRONG.

Established in 2019, Numbulwar’s first art centre is 100 per cent owned and controlled by the community. Born from the community’s desire to practice and engage with traditional culture, NNA is a space for artistic and cultural expression.

Champions of fibre art, NNA artists marry naturally-dyed and locally-harvested pandanus with bright and bold ghost nets, abandoned fishing line retrieved from Numbulwar’s shoreline. The Wulbung (baskets) and Yir (dillybags) created fit as naturally in traditional applications as they do in contemporary, urban environments.

Numbulwar sits on the Rose River and belongs to the Nunggayinbala clan, one of the Wubuy or Nunggubuyu speaking clans from the region. Ceremonial activities are still very important within the region and occur regularly.
