Slovenian Emigrant Handicraft ArchivesField trip to Sydney and Brisbane in June 2009Article
Melbourne, 20 July 2009This year the Handicrafts project is progressing further afield to New South Wales andQueensland. Field research trips in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, was madepossible by the financial support the Office for Slovenes Abroad (Urad za Slovence vzamejstvu in po svetu) in Slovenia.A treasuryof crafted works utilising Slovenian traditional skills maintained by Slovene emi-grants in Australia, which may be lost if not photographed and recorded in time, is the impe-tus for the Archives. The aim of the project is to record the work of Slovenian migrant practi-tioners of handicrafts and generally includes any creative handicraft-women and -menwherever they live. Handicrafts have become a matter of great interest in Victoria, and ahandicrafts committee of five was formed to pursue the matter of further recording and ex-tending the project.Early in the year I asked Meta Lenar

ek, and met a great number of handicrafts producers.The trip has resulted in a considerable collection of records and photos. There were 14producers in NSW, and 26 in Queensland. There are 226 photos taken in Sydney, and 291in Queensland; totalling 517 images. For a visual impression of the field trip, the photo al-bum of the trip may be viewed in Galeria Sloveniana, Slovenian Handicrafts - Sydney andBrisbane; on the link:http://www.thezaurus.com/gallery/160.For the report in Slovenian language see Misli/Thoughts (July/August), pp.22 to 24, on GlasSlovenije,http://www.glasslovenije.com.auThe Handicrafts Archives project first started in 2006 and presents work by Slovenes livingin Victoria, mainly in Melbourne. It is online as one of the permanent exhibitions of theSlovenian Ethnographic Museum of Ljubljana. More than 180,000 viewers have seen thehandicrafts on the dedicated web sitewww.rocnadela.org. The Archives are a joint initiativeof Slovenian Ethnographic Museum and the Institute for Slovenian Studies of Victoria. Theweb site was launched at the biennale Slovenian Festival at Jadran Club in Melbourne inMarch 2008.Since the announcement of the trip, I am happy to report that we have received several enquiriesby people who have collections at home and are interested in contributing to the collection.
