thesis an opportunity to explore the diverse range of artists studios and galleries This is the first I've seen of it, but it's in its 9th year!!
So I went to
Women of the West Photographic Exhibition at the Hub in Braybrook
|Photos by Suzie Blake|
The photos were marvellous, and interesting bios of the subjects.
This empty Chair (same place)
Day of Imprisoned Writer exhibition
Each chair represented a journalist or outspoken person currently imprisoned for his /her actions
Gaye Abandon School of sewing and up cycling in Footscray (Buckley street)
Also some FANTASTIC Pouffes made from old wool dressing gowns with the lovely corded pocket in the design. She uses the sleeves so the slightly widening sleeve formed the curve of the sides and the cuffs a nice band at the top edge.Reminded me of my cushions from old blanket in cupboard at Aireys
We were interested in the sashiko visible mending workshop but it's when I'm in Sydney so will look again in new Year
and the to Post Industrial design for Jos Van Hulse to talk about his window.
|This mirror is an example of his up cycling of stuff|
Love the toilet chain!
Discussion among the group was about kids not allowed to hammer nail etc and any business workshop doing this is at risk of liability not making it worth while.
