Make Your Own Feminist Soft Sculpture (CAE)
To: 5 September 2021
In partnership with the Centre for Adult Education, this fun and hands-on class offers an opportunity to observe and be inspired by the soft sculptures of Mirka Mora. Guided by arts educator Anne Thoday, you’ll then be guided through the process of creating your own feminist icon.
In this course you will learn:
• how to create a pattern;
• how to assemble and stitch your sculpture;
• how to and paint your sculpture using permanent inks, markers and acrylics.
You will have the choice to design your own feminist icon or create one from a template provided by the teacher. At the end of the 4 weeks you will have completed your own soft sculpture and will have all the skills you need to create more in your own time.
The first session takes place at the Jewish Museum of Australia to view MIRKA, and subsequent sessions will be at CAE.
