Craft concepts by Ruth Hadlow in Brisbane



If you can get to Brisbane in October, you have the opportunity to spend time with a particularly thoughtful and accomplished craftsperson.

Weekend workshop by Ruth Hadlow on Oct 18/19

at Gallery 159 Workshop space (159 Payne Road, The Gap Brisbane 4061)

EVOCATIVE OBJECTS: poetic relationships with things

All of us collect things, sometimes formally and very often informally. This workshop will explore poetic and creative relationships with the objects we collect or are intrigued by. This workshop will incorporate processes of notation, research, interpretation, installation, and investigation. We will look at examples of personal and institutional collections, conventions at work within museums as well as private collections, and ideas such as memory, subjectivity, and narrative in relation to objects. The workshop will focus on creative relationships between ideas, research material and arts practice, emphasising an open-ended rather than end-product approach to the development of ideas.


5-day Masterclass with Ruth Hadlow from Mon-Fri, Oct 20-24

at Gallery 159 Workshop space (159 Payne Road, The Gap Brisbane 4061)

IDEAS DEVELOPMENT: extending and developing individual projects.

This workshop will focus on participants’ own interests and current work, and consider possibilities and strategies for extending individual practice. It will be tailored to each participant, focused on developing ideas through research, discussion, sampling, writing, investigation and critique. The workshop aims to support participants who are interested in extending their own practice, creating challenges in the form of self-devised research projects, technical and material experimentation, as well as self-directed appraisal and critique of work and methods of practice.
