Event description

Description

This 3-day workshop is taught by Lorna Crane www.lornacrane.com and is aimed at creative people. You will gather native plant fibres, found materials, feathers, twine and binding materials as well as driftwood, found objects, twigs, and bamboo and create brushes from these materials. Each brush holds the essence of its own story of the places walked, observed, inhabited and the environment where they were collected.

You will then extend the act of mark making by developing a personal visual lexicon. When you use the brushes a language within each brush is unlocked revealing its own unique feel and quality. The mark making process is a dialogue between the brush and its maker. It enables artists to connect to drawing in a fresh and exciting way.

The next stage is to make a series of rudimentary paper or fabric books from the mark-making process. These books will be used as reference points to build towards a series of works on paper or fabric. When the books are assembled each participant will be encouraged to overdraw or collage on the paper and cloth with a variety of different mediums.

There may also be an opportunity to create big brushes collaboratively and engage in combined brush manipulation and mark making on a large scale.

This project was assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
