Wuladhi means light and ruluj means shade in Nunggubuyu, encompassing the new collaboration between Koskela and NumbulwarNumburindi Arts. Fibre artists from Numbulwar harvest ghost nets, reclaimed fishing nets, from their shores to use in the weaving of these lampshades, baskets, dilly bags and accessories. Marrying traditional weaving techniques with this colourful and contemporary material cleans up the oceans in a modern act of caring for Country, while preserving ancient weaving techniques and passing on culture to future generations.
Built on self-determination, Numbulwar Numburindi Arts is a collective of artists whose mission is to keep culture strong.
Based in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory and 100% owned and controlled by the community, Numbulwar is a space for artistic and cultural expression.
Champions of fibre art, Numbulwar artists combine naturally-dyed and locally-harvested pandanus with bright and bold ghost nets, abandoned fishing line retrieved from Numbulwar’s shores.
