Team up with a different artist each week and delve into a unique aspect of their practice. Discover fresh techniques, meet some new people and get inspired.
Week 1 – Make some doggy treats for your own special pooch with artist David Capra!
Week 2 – Work with expanded and experimental forms of marking time and measuring light with artist Ella Condon
Week 3 – Explore the intersection of personal and popular culture through an examination of fan art with artist Giselle Stanborough. Compose and decorate your own 'love letter’ to your favourite celebrities, acknowledging the ways in which consumers of popular culture are actively engaged in the creation, dissemination and interpretation of 'pop’.
Week 4 – Give it a bash. Literally!
Hapa Zome – meaning 'leaf dye’ in Japanese – is the art of staining paper or cloth with pigment from flowers and leaves by actually bashing them with a mallet! Join artist Brook Morgan for the last week of Meet and Make to try out this unique technique. All materials provided but please feel free to bring material or special paper to try.
