Join our 2019 Double Exposure resident Kirsty Macafee for a hands-on one-day workshop exploring intersections between craft techniques and contemporary image making processes.
Join Kirsty for a tour of her current exhibition, How to find yourself in a world made of images, exploring how she used photography, textiles and sculpture to trace the fluid condition of images in a digital economy. Then experiment with constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing your own images, as a technique for investigating the negotiation of identities, stories and connections.
Starting with your images printed on Kozo Paper you’ll discover how to physically ‘reformat’ these objects in multiple ways. You’ll learn to spin images into threads and begin working towards using your thread to create a unique three-dimensional form.
Saturday 28 September, 10am to 4pm
All the materials will be provided for you, and you will get to take home your drop spindle and thread.
You will need to provide one hi-res image to PhotoAccess 4 to 5 days prior to the workshop. This image will then be printed onto Kozo paper (in a colour tone of your choice) and will be ready for you to de-construct on the day of the workshop.
