Land. Home. Country. workshops

Land. Home. Country. is Griffith Regional Art Gallery’s community art exhibition and arts and crafts forum for 2017. The exhibition is grounded in the notion that an understanding of place and the environments an individual inhabits are essential parts of the creative practices of artists and crafts people. Artworks imbued with an understanding of place can convey meaning other creative mediums cannot and can provide the viewer with a transcendent experience. There are a number of workshops we have planned as part of this exciting community exhibition. All the below workshops will be held at our Lake Wyangan Studio Annex:

EN PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP with Linzie Ellis [21 October 10am - 2pm]

Like the Impressionists we will be painting outside - en plein air - exploring techniques such as dabbing paint and use of colour in changing light. Please bring a variety of brushes, acrylic paint (Primary colours and white is fine), a palette and medium size canvas. $60 for session or $100 for 2 sessions. Light refreshments provided.

FELTING WORKSHOP with Jess Forster [28 October 10am - 2pm]

In a one-day workshop, students will learn about the ancient craft of felting.
