Look out, it’s a Llama Party! Llamas are coming to The Condensery in January!
Join us to celebrate Caitlin Franzman’s work in Natural State which explores the interconnections between people, animals and ecosystems. Did you know Llamas are bred to help humans in many ways? They are super social and gentle but also great guard animals and chase off predators from their herd. Their wool is also beautiful and soft, creating the perfect fibre for garments and blankets.
Join artist Nicole Crosswell for our No Drama Llama soft sculpture workshop. Nicole Crosswell is a practicing visual artist, arts facilitator and the scientific illustrator for The Queensland Herbarium at Mt. Coot-tha Botanical Gardens. Her arts practice embodies the phrase ‘to draw’; from contemporary manipulation of physical thread and line through to traditional methods of drawing and mark making.
Each workshop will run for an hour and a half, with participants welcome to come beforehand to enjoy the other festivities at The Condensery’s Llama Party, as well as The Condensery’s two exhibitions Natural State and Perceptions.
THIS PROJECT IS FUNDED BY THE FOUNDATION FOR RURAL AND REGIONAL RENEWAL IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT.
