2022 Art Calendar

$29.95

This collection of work features artworks that inspires hope and connection – with each other and with nature. You will be invited to connect with the environment around you and to be present in your experiences with your fellow human beings and also to imagine having a party in a salad bowl and having a cup of tea with a wombat and wallaby.

A3 size 29.7 x 42cm and bound with eco friendly, fair trade twine. This is a conscious decision to minimise the carbon footprint of this product and waste produced by single use binding.  

Simply tear off the front page when the month is done at the small perforated section above each hole. The calendar sheets are printed on one side.

Ideas for your calendar when the month is done: gift the art print, cut into postcard size and use to mail to a friend, cut into sections for gift tags, save for gifts!

Description

Previously we provided reusable metal rings for binding, however through our ongoing research into more planet-friendly ways we can run this business we have decided to ditch the metal rings because of the energy required to make them – first the minerals need to be mined, shipped overseas, mixed with a bunch of other minerals, melted down and manufactured into rings, then shipped to Australia where we had to test each one because about half of the rings per pack weren’t usable.

We have gone with recycled cotton twine which is made from dead-stock textile waste in a family factory near Barcelona. The textile waste is broken down back into combed cotton fibre, colours are blended and respun into new thread – there is no dyeing involved in this process. This product is made overseas so does need to take a trip to get to Australia – however at this stage there are no recycled cotton twine manufacturers in Aus. Eventually we’re looking forward to creating our own recycled twine from textile waste in Australia.

You have the simple task of taking a moment at the end of each month to gently remove the front page using the perforated line and voilà your new month is ready to go!
