Workshop – The Photograph Transformed – Sydney June, 2013

I had the great pleasure of teaching a workshop as part of my survey exhibition, Looking Backwards Gazing Forwards, at NG Gallery here in Sydney.  We worked in the gallery space surrounded by my artworks.

Using vintage portraits printed on watercolour paper I took the participants through the process of transforming the images with watercolour, coloured pencils, oil pastels and also embroidery.  Everyone had a different approach to their work, and the results were all so beautiful.

This all took place while sharing some wine and delicious savouries – with plenty of good conversation and interchange of ideas.  A pretty good way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
