Exploring SEED DIVERSITY through ART welcomes the curious, whether highly experienced or finding your way with visual exploration.

You may bring along samples of native seeds & pods from your local area if you enjoy collecting and all you need bring is a small kit of useful things from home.

5. Experimentation with colour, texture, finding/abstracting form ... looking at motif, symbol, patterning , geometry, seeds under through various lenses.
WHAT WE WILL GET UP TO:
Mixed media supplies and a range of papers will be put to use in a program of lively exercises for wide-ranging experimentation during the morning.
Expect to be very busy testing approaches.
the Afternoon session will slow down to focus on generating colour panels for development as concertina books and artist. books that also include experiments from morning session.
You'll be encouraged to make 2 or more books ... ... taking home work for finishing at your pace at home. Processes like stitching, collaging, adding furthering layering to your work allow your book projects to take on a life of their own. Individuals work at different paces ... and the day is designed to give you lively, varied approaches that lead to new & rewarding directions for your own particular art practice..
