Tendril Productions produced and production managed the creation and installation of two giant weavings in Pinkstone Playground (Erskineville NSW) for Reef Knot. Commissioned by City of Sydney, these permanent artworks are presented as an alternative to standard playground equipment. Taking the form of a nest and a coccoon, the weavings took nine months to complete in situ with the assistance of over a dozen weavers. The artworks are created from brushwood, alang alang and hemp twine over a mild steel armature.
