Join the Shibori ladies for an inspiring morning learning the principles of Shibori – the Japanese art of manipulating fabric to produce beautiful and unique textiles.
Through various methods of folding and clamping, binding and stitching, you can use techniques as simple or as complex as you wish. This workshop guarantees you the chance to walk away with some beautiful pieces you made yourself, and offers an insight to the magic that results from Indigo dyeing.
Melbourne based artist Rowena Martinich presents a new series of paintings in her exhibition Inamorata. Inamorata will be an immersive experience where the viewer can witness the process of the artist; the way she moves around the canvas, builds up layers to create windows and depth through the field of painting. The expression and emotional investment in these works is evident in Martinich’s natural inclination towards colour.
This exhibition is an Associated Event of Art and About Sydney 2014, produced by City of Sydney
