Workshop at artisan  |  Personal Weaving with Emily McGuire  | Saturday 7 November

Join the multi-disciplinary Unleashed artist, Emily McGuire, in the creation of weavings, responsibly utilising your own discarded garments. Weavings often resemble a window into a maker's mood or personality. They have the potential to be wound up tightly or looking quite violent and haphazard, depending on the frame of mind of the weaver. Be guided through the process of weaving your very own wall hanging or table decoration using your own unique and personal items or from the collection ethically sourced by Emily McGuire. 

Saturday 7 November, 11am – 2pm
Cost: $85 per person 
Suitable for all adults, no experience necessary
Bookings are essential, so book now.

artisan Exhibitions  |  Ending 28 November

Open up your mind and discover wonderful new exhibitions now on at artisan on King St. 

UNLEASHED 2020: Emerging Craft and Design
Main Gallery
16 October to 28 November 2020

Unleashed 2020: Emerging Craft & Design brings together six exciting emerging Queensland artists whose practices take us beyond the worn and utilitarian to a more complex and challenging conceptual realm. What might appear initially to be an exhibition of a disparate range of fashion, textiles, jewellery and ceramics are, in fact, a challenging group of objects and installations that interrogate aesthetic form and function, notions of identity and diverse social issues.

Look a little deeper, and you will find a refined exploration of visual art tropes, story-telling and performance, still life ceramics, contemporary heirlooms, costumeries, couture, and post-consumer waste. Unleashed 2020 is your opportunity to get to know the cutting-edge work of Queensland's up-and-coming, emerging craft practitioners and designers.
