Collaborative Sketching

21 September | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Participants are invited to collaborate with each other directly, producing a series of drawings composed by the actions of several visitors at the same time. This truly social experience encourages groups of people to interact with the act of sketching in a totally new way; using a series of tablet computers to produce a united, central art piece. This cooperative experience generates excitement and dialogue amongst guests as they decide how best to produce their drawing.

Free Entry – RSVP

Sketchbooks Are Dead

22 September | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

An experience connecting people through sketchbooks, sketching, food, drink and putting all those elements into a beautifully curated space for people to explore. This is great opportunity for people to engage one another while exploring and challenging their own artistic abilities.

Free Entry – RSVP

The Word

23 September | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

This experimental drawing approach dives into the emotions and psyches of participants, using massive projections of provocative words to instigate a sketchbook experience unlike any other. Guests are invited to produce a series of drawings based on a number of different words; without writing or reproducing the word itself. The words are carefully and specifically selected to create a subtle and engaging narrative throughout the event.

Free Entry – RSVP

Provocations

24 September | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Provocations is an experimental exercise in portraiture. By applying a series of creative obstructions to participants drawing process’, we aim to evoke a number of emotional responses. These responses, or provocations, are intended to produce unique and unexpected outcomes. Provocations aims to evolve the pair-drawing experience.

Free Entry – RSVP

We are bringing together local artists, designers and makers to our exciting venue for a 10 day showcase/pop-up shop, come hunt for art prints, stationery, handcrafted jewellery, gifts and unique goods for home and lifestyle!
