Express your ideas by working with natural and made materials to create wonderful 2D and 3D structures/installations/collages whilst exploring the possibilities of various materials and techniques.

Some of these include: working with collected soil from the site onto twig constructions, paper and other structures, printing from the land onto paper and fabric using clay as well as dying with vegetation. How to shape, bind, glue, stitch, weave, solder, rivet or wire various materials together to create site or theme specific installations and artworks.

Inspirations will be drawn from art works and/or found objects, the natural environment and history

 

PARTICIPANTS TO BRING:

 

Materials to personalise your work such as:

A selection of photocopied images of artworks/photographs /poems/writings, and/or other (found) objects of your interest to use as inspiration – it would be desirable if the images/stories/objects would relate to the history and or the landscape of Perth or WA in general in order to develop site/theme specific works/installations during the workshop, however participants might like to transpose/overlay their own memory/history and interpretations onto the site.

This experience will provide an opportunity to further explore ideas connected to memory, place, and/identity and will assist participants with the development of future works on other sites/other venues/exploring other themes/objects/histories.
