SAT 22 AUG, 10.00AM – 3.00PM, Dunedin School of Art, Riego St (off Albany St), Dunedin
If you weren’t aware this was on, this Saturday’s open day‘s an all-welcome opportunity to see what goes on the Art School’s world-class workshop facilities, explore the studios and get a sense of the creative community it fosters. There’ll be demos and basic tuition in a range of media including dry-point etching and jewellery-making, and of course textiles. How much fun does this sound?
Textiles. “Screen printing on fabric” with Victoria Bell, Alicia Hall and Vivien Dwyer
Textiles will be hosting a series of felting projects in our studio for the public to take part in. Third year BVA student Alicia Hall will showcase her dynamic final year studio project, which requires 10,000 felted units to be completed by November. Alicia will let people in on her process, demonstrating washing machine felting for all to try. Vivien Dwyer will also demonstrate needle and wet felting. Visitors may contribute to a large needle felt work or make an individual piece to take home.
If you’re not in Dunedin, or can’t get along, watch this space, because we’ll try to get along to check out the project.
