Indoor Ephemerals Art Experience with Shona Wilson

OVERVIEW

EPHEMERAL ART DEFINITION:
Transitory artwork lasting but a day …… Here today – gone tomorrow!

I am excited to host Shona for an indoor workshop.
Her inspiration and guiding hand has opened my mind (and many others) to endless creativity using only the natural environment as material.

This workshop is a stepping-stone to Shona’s Collaborations with Nature’ held outdoors as well as an experience to compliment any art practice.
It is an opportunity for anyone with outdoor experience to learn how and why working indoors is different.

Date:  Saturday 28th July 2018
Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm


VENUE:
A private residence in Elizabeth Bay

TRANSPORT:
Train to Kings Cross Station, then 311 bus or 15 min walk (downhill).
Free parking in the grounds of the private estate.

WHAT TO BRING

  • In the lead up to the workshop please collect small and natural objects such as stones, leaves, twigs, insects, bone, shells – use your imagination! They can be ‘fresh’ or ‘fallen’. Go for what you love, maybe those little treasures already lining the mantelpiece or shelves at home. Materials you are happy to tear, break, crush etc.
  • Objects to be no bigger than your hand (ie no whole dead trees!) Approx. enough materials to fill a vegetable box.
  • Camera
  • Pen and notebook
  • Lunch and drink
  • Your curiosity and imagination
  • No Tools

The whole indoor space will be our ‘site’ and ‘canvas’ for the day’s creations.
We may venture outdoors for a couple of exercises; also for the free time making session (1.30-3.00pm)
