Today I ran a workshop at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. We spent some time checking out the current exhibition 'The Art of Science - Scientific Illustrations from Museum Victoria' and used certain aspects of the drawings in the exhibition to create wearable pieces. Drawings were painted with watercolours, cut, laminated and reconfigured to create brooches, neckpieces and earrings.
A big thanks to Mia P, Ella M, Sojeong, Sophie, Ella J, Jasmine, Emily, Jilly, Zoe, Olivia, Mia, Anna and Montanah for taking part today. Lots of great pieces were made!
