UPCOMING WORKSHOPS/EVENTS

 

MINIMAKERS
Reverse Garbage Workshop
Mini Beasts, Bugs and Creepy Crawlies
Saturday 27 April, 10.30am-12.00pm
For school aged children.
$5 per child

Children of all ages are fascinated by nature and just love creepy crawlies. In this workshop we will be making riveting invertebrates, enthralling arthropods and curious crustaceans. We’ll use community collected bottle tops and collage techniques with our array of salvaged materials like cardboard circles, bendy wire, microfiche (for wings) and foam pieces together with non-toxic PVA glue, contact, sticky foam and staples to decorate.


DABBLE AT DOGWOOD
Reverse Garbage Workshop
Steampunk Jewellery
Saturday 27 April, 1.00pm-3.00pm
For teens and adults.
$10 per person

Inspired by 19th century steam powered technology and Victorian era adventure and invention, Steampunk is now an established style and popular medium for jewellery design. It is an aesthetic informed by brass cogs, rusty gears, rivets, pistons, adventure-worn leather and mechanical contraptions of old. Students will look back to the past and imagine a future that runs on steam to create a piece of wearable art using salvaged materials such as watch parts, cogs, keys, leather and broken jewellery.
