Hand Sewing & Embroidery with Sophie Nixon (Bullsbrook)
August 6 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Please note that this program is suitable for ages 14+, and is a hands-on workshop. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event.
Learn basic patchwork and quilting skills with Sophie Nixon. From simple stitches to tricky French knots, Sophie will show you new ways to re-invent recycled fabrics. Basic sewing materials are provided, and participants may bring bed linen or other sentimental fabrics to utilise.
In Foraging In The Waste Stream, five contemporary artists critique the insatiable appetite of consumerism by searching for ways to reduce, recycle, reuse and reclaim materials through their artworks. They ask, through foraging and fossicking, how can art shift our perception of what is trash and what is treasure?
This community program is held as a part of a series of five artist residences at the Ethel Warren Bullsbrook Community Centre and will conclude with an exhibition at Ellenbrook Arts HQ (34 Main St Ellenbrook), from 11 November-8 December 2022. Foraging the Waste Stream is curated by local contemporary artist Tami Esancy and made possible with support from City of Swan, Ellenbrook Arts and DLGSCI.
In accordance with hygiene requirements, social distancing will be maintained throughout this program and hand sanitizing stations and cleaning products will be available for use.
Please book in as spaces are limited. For all inquiries contact Bullsbrook Community Library on (08) 9207 8989.
