STORIES WE TELL OURSELVES: STITCH WORKSHOPS, adults

Saturday 8 or Saturday 22 September, 12.00-3.00

541 ART SPACE, Level 1, 541 Kent Street, Sydney, 2000, 541artspace@nanhaimedia.com, www.541artspace.com.au

Running in conjunction with the exhibition Stories We Tell Ourselves.

Spend an afternoon stitching an abstract artwork that reflects your own unique story. You’re encouraged to bring along any personal or used fabric or garments that are meaningful to you in some way (that you won’t mind cutting up). We’ll explore shape, colour, composition and memory to make a special piece of art or an experimental piece that will expand your creativity that little bit more. Refreshments are included.

All materials and equipment will be provided, including a selection of fabrics if you forget to bring some of your own.

Booking essential. Cost $25 + booking fee. Please use this link to book your place.

 

 

CONSIDERING COLLAGE: DEVELOPING CREATIVE PROCESSES, adults

Fridays, terms 3 (23 July - 22 September) and 4 (15 October - 15 December), 12.30-3.30

KU-RING-GAI ART CENTRE, Bancroft Park, 3 Recreation Avenue, Roseville NSW 2069  T: 9424 0310 E: artcentre@kmc.nsw.gov.au

Expand your creative potential in this course that is all about ideas. Examine collage works by well-known Modernist and contemporary artists. Experiment using their techniques as a guide while developing your own style.

Stimulate your creativity, compile resources and ideas for future work, and experiment with materials and concepts in friendly and supportive surroundings.

You will finish the term with a journal full of ideas, notes and experimentation, and a series of textile/paint/collected item collages. You can use the collages you make as finished works in themselves, or as studies for subsequent paintings, prints or textile pieces.

MAKING A MINDFUL TOTE BAG WORKSHOP, adults

(Picture coming soon...)

Weekend workshop, Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 November, 10.00-4.00

KU-RING-GAI ART CENTRE, Bancroft Park, 3 Recreation Avenue, Roseville NSW 2069  T: 9424 0310 E: artcentre@kmc.nsw.gov.au

Spend a weekend indulging in contemplative hand-stitching in this two day workshop. You’ll create a completely unique, fully lined, and beautiful tote bag from your selection of an assortment of eco-dyed fabric pieces, and used or remnant cloth. Play with colours, textures and composition. Learn some new stitches or create variations with one stitch. The creative freedom is yours.

There is some machine sewing (so it’s good if you’ve had some experience - but not strictly necessary), cutting and assembling involved, but we’ll have lots of time for decorative, meditative, repetitive (and not so repetitive) stitching along the way. And good conversation, of course!

Please bring along any fabric you’re keen to use (old doilies, tablecloths, jeans, whatever) or use some from my stash. If you have embroidery or fabric scissors please bring them too.

There will be a materials fee for thread and cloth - to be advised.
