Textiles and Installation workshop – Mount Best Hall

Textiles

Workshop Dates

Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July: 11.00am - 4.00pm*

Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July: 11.00am - 4.00pm*

There will be an exhibition outcome with this project. Details TBA.

What to Expect

Join Beth and a local dyeing practitioner to create a walk-through art installation on the Mount Best Hall tennis court. The workshops will involve natural dyeing, hand sewing and installation practice.

Participants will take home a keepsake as well as contribute to the final artwork. The resulting piece, Shell, will be a textile sculpture that connects with the local space and gets us thinking about place.

This workshop can accommodate any age, ability and up to 10 participants (please note that participants under 15 years of age will need to be supervised by an accompanying adult).

You can attend just one session, or come to them all!

As numbers are limited, please register your interest before attending.

How to Register

Please book for each workshop you wish to attend as numbers are limited to 10 per session.

To register your interest in being a part of Shell, please contact Mary Sullivan, Arts Development Officer at South Gippsland Shire Council by emailing mary.sullivan@southgippsland.vic.gov.au or calling 5662 9200.
