Presenting a selection of creative collaborations and workshop outcomes, this exhibition showcases the vitality and diversity of First Nations artists who have worked with designers and skilled makers at JamFactory in various way to produce design objects across their four specialised studio areas – furniture, ceramics, metal and glass.
