Dowel Jones & Geelong Weaving Mill
Programmed as part of Geelong Design Week, Geelong Gallery presents the results of a creative collaboration between one of the city’s most dynamic contemporary design brands and one of its oldest manufacturers. In a series of new works, Dowel Jones apply the traditionally crafted materials from Geelong Weaving Mill (GWM) to their contemporary furniture designs. The collaboration acknowledges the important history of wool and textiles within the region – that GWM has been part of for almost a century — and contemporary designers working at the forefront of the city’s UNESCO City of Design designation.
