Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of art making and conversation.

========================================

Kate Hunter is a contemporary jeweller with a Bachelor of Design in Jewellery and Metalsmithing. From her small home studio on the northern beaches of Cairns, she works intuitively with materials of all kinds. She explores conventional and industrial surface treatments by juxtaposing precious and non-precious metals, natural and found objects with traditional domestic crafts of knitting, crochet and embroidery. Kate Hunter creates jewellery pieces that are small and functional wearable sculptures. “I am fascinated with the magic and power a piece of jewellery can have and how it can become part of the wearer.”

This workshop aims to build a narrative around non-conventional materials being repurposed to create adornment for the body. The repurposing of household materials into something that can be worn on the body opens discussion about contemporary art jewellery and domestic crafts. Kate Hunter will demonstrate and share jewellery-making techniques that allow interesting materials to be arranged, stitched and bound together to create a wearable piece of art.

Materials supplied: The artist's curiosity box of plastic plant parts and other odd things, redundant electrical cords, binding materials and tools.

Participants are requested to bring any small items that they feel drawn to or that inspire them in some way. Materials can be sourced from the kitchen junk draw, the recycle bin, broken toys, obsolete technology, electrical cables, string, embroidery thread, fabric, beads, old costume jewellery, natural objects, unfinished craft projects.

Please arrive at 6:15pm to settle in.
