Cabinet of Curiosities . . . for small intriguing Textile objets d'art

A cabinet of curiosities was an encyclopaedic collection in Renaissance Europe of types of wondrous and exotic objects, whose categorical boundaries were yet to be defined.

ATASDA NSW had the glass display cabinet, for a display of small intriguing Textile objets d'art, in the foyer of Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park for November 2013-January 2014.

This fabulous opportunity promoted Textile Arts and Surface Design to all who used the centre, plus the cabinet enabled active promotion of our Workshops and Tasters through member works.
