The Redfern Tapestry: A Labor of Love
At the heart of this event is "The Redfern Tapestry," a remarkable masterpiece created by Sophie Parry, a proud 107 Redfern Resident and the owner of Sydney Creative. This intricate tapestry was created as part of 107’s Made in Redfern Festival, and is the culmination of Sophie's vision, skill, and dedication, capturing the essence of Redfern with every stitch. What makes this tapestry truly unique is that it's crafted from fabric donated by the very residents of Redfern, infusing the artwork with the heart and soul of the community. Celebrate the iconic areas, landmarks, and stories that have shaped this neighborhood's rich history and culture, as seen through Sophie's artistic lens.
