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.

EXPLORATIONS INTO CONTEMPORARY DRAWING

Adults, all skill levels

9 week term, 2.5 hour class, Thursdays 6.30-9.00 pm

Term 4 starts 15 October

 

This experimental drawing course will stretch your creative thinking and assist the development of your work into new areas. Examining the work of other artists and their processes while focusing on composition, mark making, observation and tone, we’ll use creative exercises to unlock ideas to use on personal projects.

By term’s end you’ll have made a small body of unique artworks, and have a head full of new techniques and processes. You will also have a journal filled with ideas, notes and experiments that will provide an amazing resource for your future projects.

This course runs in 3 x 3-week blocks. There is an option to enrol in 1,2 or all 3 modules.
