Dancing to the sounds of an acapella group at AirSpace Projects on a Saturday morning?

Sounds fantastic!

A musical event coinciding with The Democracy of Drawing 2

Saturday 22 March 11.30-11.50am.  All Welcome.

ising on the cake is a 25 person strong acappella group that sings  everything from Dusty Springfield and Leonard Cohen to Elvis Costello, Alicia Keyes, Paul Kelly and Gotye. All our arrangements are put together by our talented musical director Stuart Davis. We’ve sung in all sorts of locations including Federation Square in Melbourne, the Basement, clifftop weddings, markets and railway stations. Everyone says we look like we’re having fun when we sing and they’re right! We’re the only acappella group you can dance to!

What happens when you approach stitching as a kind of mark marking?

This hands-on workshop is part of The Democracy of Drawing Exhibition at Airspace Projects for Marrickville Open Studio Trail and Art Month Sydney. Join visual artist and maker Alex Falkiner to learn a range of mark making techniques using needle and thread. Working with fabric with stitch you’ll have time to experiment, combine, and layer the techniques to create interesting effects. All materials, tea and bickies provided. However you are most welcome to bring along an interesting base cloth (woven only, not stretch fabric) to work into. Bookings Essential.

Suitable for stitchers and non-stitchers, drawers and non-drawers.

A bit about Alex Falkiner:
My workshops encourage playful, flexible and innovative approaches to hand-making. I like to keep groups small and intimate to allow for individual attention. Alex is excited about textile techniques because they are so portable, accessible, useful, beautiful and adaptable. Please join me in transforming ‘at hand’ materials into unexpected delights!

Experience? I’ve taught workshops for Kinfolk Magazine, Koskela, Object Gallery, Etsy, Bundanon Trust, Headspace, Gaffa Gallery, Q Station Manly, Woollahra Village Weekend, Work-shop, Gallery Lane Cove, Jurassic Lounge & the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

11-3pm Saturday 1 March AirSpace Projects

This interactive work invites visitors to draw or write on small pieces of Hanji paper then fold and pin these to a wall in the gallery. This complements Lee’s work that consists of many drawn and folded pieces of paper in the manner of the Buddhist Prayer tradition. The end result will be a large collaborative and ephemeral work created by Lee and visitors to AirSpace Projects that will be dismantled at the end of the day.
