Risks and challenges

Along with the great peaks, joys and excitement of working with remote communities come the challenges and the surprises. Floods, cyclones, funerals, bush holiday, ceremonies, crocs, planes, flat tyres etc etc etc often mean that artists are away or art centres are unexpectedly closed or deliveries take longer than expected.

We are planning on mitigating these inevitabilities by ordering bulk fabric; and ordering regularly. Art centres often have high demand and few staff: so even ordering bulk and regularly can take a while!

We have created this 'pre-order' kickstarter so that you can put in your order and relax, rest assured that a fabulous piece will be delivered safely and happily to you somewhere down the line. We hope for May, but it could be June: subject to all of the things. We will let you know how we're tracking along the way!

Another challenge is SIZING: we will provide exchange options should your item not be the right size.
