What: Weaving Workshop: Ronda Sharpe
When: Saturday 13 July 2019, 10am - 1pm
Where: Griffith University Art Museum
Join us for a special NAIDOC Week weaving workshop facilitated by environmental artist Ronda Sharpe. Designed for weavers of all abilities, participants will be taught various traditional and contemporary weaving techniques and guided to produce a woven object to take home. All materials will be provided.
Queensland College of Art postgraduate student Ronda Sharpe promotes awareness of waste in our ecosystem by creating artworks using discarded materials that are considered trash. The recycled mediums highlight the contemporary boundaries of connecting to consumerism and the throwaway society we currently live in.
Ronda's art practice developed outside of her traditional country of Wiradjuri; She was raised in Parkes NSW without the knowledge of her Indigenous background until recent years. Ronda is currently connecting with her cultural history and is inspired by her love and concerns for the environment by examining the connections of the past, the present and the future.
