But the action doesn’t stop there.

Check out our January Drawing Workshops! 

In January Li Wenmin will be running two fabulous workshops Drawing For Beginners and Drawing Through Journey in the soon to be opened workshop area. Check Workshops on our menu for more information.

Wenmin is a practising artist who specialises in drawing. She trained in Beijing and has acquired a PhD (Fine Arts) from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. Wenmin has been teaching at a tertiary level for well over ten years and is well positioned to not only assist you to acquire skills in drawing but also to build an understanding of what drawing is and the role of drawing in contemporary art today. Li Wenmin is represented by Flinders Street Gallery.

Alex Falkiner will also be re-running her popular Drawing With Thread and Stitching Off The Page on 25 and 31 January respectively. More details to come.

AirSpace Projects will be opening again on Friday 6 February 2015 with Iconoclasts. Stay tuned for details.

These courses are suitable for beginners and emerging  artists and established artists who want to take a fresh approach to their practice. Age 16 or over.

More workshops to come!

Commences Sunday 22 February 2015, 2.00-4.00pm

In addition to this exciting news artist and academic Kaye Shumack will be facilitating a two-hour Artist’s Workshop from Sunday 22 February 2015. This workshop offers practicing artists in any medium a space for discussion about their works-in-progress. At each session, every artist is invited to speak about their works-in-progress, to gain insights and feedback from other artists at the session. The intention of this workshop is to create an open space for dialogue and critique, to support every artist in the development of existing and new directions. Contact us if you’re interested!

 

Alex Falkiner returns with another one of her amazing workshops!

Sunday 12 October 1.00 to 4.00pm

Join visual artist and maker Alex Falkiner to learn how to stitch off the page. This is follow up workshop from Drawing With Thread but can be also be taken independently. Alex will walk you through a variety of techniques using needle and thread to stitch beyond the page. Playing around the edges you’ll learn techniques like netting, fringing and blanket stitch to create different lace-like effects.  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 or stitched piece that you’d like to create an edging for or expand upon. Also bring any beads or embellishments you’d like to experiment with. Bookings Essential.
