SHELTER DOMESTICS

Online exhibition opening 1 June

1 June to 31 August 2020

Turning gendered semiotics and the genre works of domestic settings on its head, Shelter Domestics examines the unusual current situation of home life where boundaries of the private and the public are blurred and at times, interchanged. It brings to the fore how the intimate space of the home is now claimed as a multi-functional site of work, entertainment and personal refuge.

TESTIMONIALS
I want to thank you for a thoroughly delightful day being introduced to the art of Boro rice bag making.
I have spent the better part of my waking hours since Thursday stitching, contemplating, evaluating, adorning, and ultimately completing my bag this morning. These have been utterly tranquil hours. I think it is the combination of creating a pleasing composition, the focus and repetition of stitching, the  knowledge that each recycled material has a history, the invitation to fine-tune and personalise with adornments, and the joy of creation that made this such a rewarding experience.
It was a pleasure to meet you and exchange ideas.
Robin

 

Very inspirational.

Thanks for a wonderful day Rhonda! Very proud of my Boro bag! I’ve definitely been bitten.

Just a big thank you for your time, skill, taste and patience, all given freely at your engrossing workshop.
I would love to attend more in the future.

EXPLORING DRAWING IN A CONTEMPORARY WAY

Making collage with paper

Term 4:  2020

Adults, beginner to intermediate levels

 

Stretch your creativity and sharpen your skills in this experimental drawing course. Examine works and concepts of a selection of well-known twentieth century, as well as contemporary, artists. Play with different ways of seeing while working with observation, composition, colour, form, mark-making and mood while developing your own unique style. A mix of creative exercises will be combined with plenty of time for personal projects.

You will finish the term with some unique new art works, and a journal full of ideas, notes and experimentation that will feed your future projects.

Relevant videos and podcasts will be played and discussed. Resource links will be provided where appropriate.
