Message Stick – Wathaurong Glass (2003)


The Wathaurong community of Geelong began a glass business in order to provide employment for their people.

Curator’s notes

Geelong’s Wathaurong community produces glasswork inspired by Aboriginal designs. The work is breathtakingly beautiful, and the initiative has a vision that provides a framework to support the future of Aboriginal glasswork.

Presented by Rachel Maza, this is episode 23 in series 4 of Message Stick.
