Wednesday Night Workshop: Lost Found Transformed
DatesWed 17 Aug
Join us at Bunjil Place for an evening of relaxed art-making led by artist Yaz Gaté. Come and play with paint and thrift-store objects to create your own unique art object. An awesome opportunity to spend time getting to know like-minded individuals, while exploring your creative side.
During this two-hour workshop, 2D and 3D thrift-store and op-shop objects will be transformed using colour, shape and a variety of paints. Inspired by David Sequeira’s art practice, this workshop is about channelling childhood excitement to "reimagine" and transform discarded objects. A delectable grazing platter and delicious drinks will accompany your workshop experience.
No prior experience required, all skill levels welcome. Materials and refreshments provided. Suitable for those aged 18+.
Melbourne-based Yaz Gaté, née del Mar, is founder of Tiny Cupboard Creatives - a small enterprise providing exciting in-home studio and virtual classes, workshops and events for learners of all ages, as well as commissioned artwork and creative collaborations with other artists and organisations such as The Tarra Warra Museum of Art, The City of Greater Dandenong and the Philippine Embassy of Australia.
Yaz specialises in canvas and digital art but has a wide practice that includes textiles and sewing, lino printing and drawing. She has a strong interest in botanicals, their connection to cultural identity and the way culture and life stories shape art making. Over the last two years, she has drawn on her own Filipino Australian background to explore the way migration and family can impact storytelling in art. Yaz typically uses bold black lines and vibrant colour palette making her work distinctive.
