Weaving Stories

Explore the historic Onkaparinga Woollen Mill after dark and learn the stories of the people who made the famous Onkaparinga blankets. Dramatic, large-scale projections, performances and installations throughout the site, created by artist Vic McEwan from the Cad Factory, will present the experiences of former workers and celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Mill’s establishment.

Local artists, writers and community members will be contributing to this multi-sensory experience, including live performance, light projections and ballroom dancing, bringing the stories of the Onkaparinga Woollen Mill and its workers to life.

This project is supported by Adelaide Hills Council and was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
