Event description

Description

Sit in the CS Gallery and learn to make bark paintings the Pacific way. The Tapa cloth is said to be the fabric of Pacific society. Come and find out why while you paint symbols, animals and plants onto your own bark artwork.

This workshop will guided by an artist who made one of the pieces of The Melbourne Tapa, a 20 metre textile on display in the CS gallery while you work.

The Tapa is made from bark and painted with symbols and motifs to make unique designs, each with their own story to tell. Celebrate the many rich Pacific cultures in our neighbourhood by adding your own bark story to the CS Gallery community wall.
