In June, our very first international artist is heading to Platform all the way from London for her debut Australian exhibition and a series of workshops.
Join Jess de Wahls - known as the 'enfant terrible of British textile arts' - for two amazing feminist embroidery workshops.
Saturday 2nd June - Big Swinging Ovaries embroidery workshop. BOOK HERE.
Sunday 3rd June - Vagestic Mandala embroidery workshop. BOOK HERE.
You'll be guided through embroidery basics to help create your own feminist memento which you can take home at the end of the day.
Step by step instructions will be provided, as well as all necessary materials, patterns, hoops, fabric, needles, pencils, scissors and a selection of colourful embroidery floss.
You don't need to be a seasoned stitcher to take part in this workshop. What's absolutely needed is an open mind to a contemporary approach to an old craft, and a little patience since embroidery is a time-intensive art form.
Each workshop is limited to 10 places so early booking is advised.
