Event description

Description

Archae-aus, a cultural heritage management consultancy based in North Fremantle, have been appointed by City of Fremantle to undertake archaeological investigations for the Kings Square redevelopment project. Kings Square has undergone many changes since it was established in 1833. Archaeological excavations will be undertaken in areas between High Street and Newman Court. Archaeologists will be looking for evidence of the 1840s predecessor to the current St John’s Church, that used to stand in the centre of the Square. The archaeologists expect to unearth the earlier church foundations as well as historical material from the late 1800s. These will shed new light into what life was like in Fremantle during the early nineteenth century.

This workshop will use unprovenanced historical material associated in date to the King's Square excavations and re-purpose them into jewellery. Participants will be able to make imaginative necklaces using historical artefacts that have a unique past of their own, making jewellery that holds a secret hidden and mysterious past!
