Laneway has been invited to provide the crafty part of this fab worshop for the April kid’s school holidays at City of Sydney libraries (Glebe branch)
There are two parts.
11am – 12pm: First an illustrated talk by entomologist, Rob Blackburn on why scientists use taxidermy for studies and how taxidermists preserved animals in the past.
12pm – 1pm: Then Laneway steps up and will be making little felt and cloth animals with textile artist Helen Richards. Tickets are ONLY available via the City of Sydney’s Eventbrite websites below is the link. Bookings are essential.
We will make little felt and cloth animals inspired by taxidermy of the past – but in this Laneway version, no animal will be harmed. Take home your own little beast.
Helen Richards is a textile designer and professional quilter, with an amazing, deep knowledge of the history and social significance of the art of quilting.
‘All my life I have had a love affair with fabrics, textiles and cloth. There are just so many possibilities of colour, pattern, texture, tone and mood. My professional life has been spent as a graphic designer, lecturer, and business owner.’
