Talking Hands by Zoya Martin

“It’s all done with a bit of TLC. Hand-sewing the footies is meticulous. I use stalls which protect my hands. You turn a piece of leather into something that everyone loves — it could be used in an AFL grand final. It’s about pride in the workmanship, it wasn’t just a job.”

– Syd, Fourth generation Football-maker and descendant of T.W. Sherrin, pioneer of the iconic Sherrin football

 

“My hands are important in developing a sense of connection. Contact made breaks down barriers, allowing a space of belonging to be created.”

– Andrew, Youth Worker
