Melbourne Art Library - Craft Contemporary Festival

Crafted Conversations Instagram Live

To celebrate the handmade, Melbourne Art Library present 'Crafted Conversations', a satellite program of the 2021 Craft Contemporary festival presented by Craft Victoria.


Hear about Luciano’s upcoming projects including Spinning Yarns, an interactive performance work developed for Knox Immerse festival, and how the past two years have transformed his practice.

LUCIANO is an arts educator and multidisciplinary artist seeking to reveal the histories embedded in materials. By integrating handicraft and new media, he explores the social relationship between people and textile crafts. Luciano has developed the community arts project Queerways: Retracing Melbourne's Queer Footprint in collaboration with Georgia Keats and supported by the Australian Queer Archive.

Craft Victoria - Craft Contemporary Festival

Virtual Open Studio Tour

Following a recent trip to Burano, Italy, Luciano was given lace cottons that had been owned and used by his great grandmother, grandmother and mother in their own craft practices. These cotton heirlooms inspired him to create his own lacework, in which he intertwines these cottons with contemporary threads, tying together the history of the material and craft with his own contemporary experiences and practice in point lace making.

During his Virtual Open Studio, Luciano will demonstrate how his punto in aria (‘stitches in the air’) come to be, taking participants through the steps of needle lace production. Using his current lacework as a base, Luciano will show how to move from a pattern to lacework, as well as demonstrate some basic stitches.
