You're invited to join us for an immersive cultural experience at QVMAG, learning the art of possum skin cultural practices with Maree Clarke and Vicki West.
Design your own take-home possum skin pelt and follow traditional Aboriginal Australian cloak making to launch the upcoming QVMAG exhibition Wrapped in Culture.
Wrapped in Culture is a collaborative project that brought together ten First Nations artists from Australia and Canada for a three-week art collaboration to create a buffalo robe and a possum skin cloak. The resulting robe and cloak will be displayed as part of an exhibition opening 22 January 2021 at Queen Victoria Art Gallery, Royal Park.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to share the stories and creative process of two iconic Aboriginal artists, whilst experiencing a hands-on traditional practice employed to produce a contemporary work.
All materials provided. There is limited availability, so please book early to secure your place.
