Judy Darragh Masterclass – SLAP STICK

SLAP STICK is a two-day workshop exploring the use of non-traditional materials in body adornment.
Using a wide range of found and upcycled materials we will experiment with combinations of unlikely materials and textures to make forms to adhere to the body. The methods of attachment will be explored and the placement around the body need not be the traditional sites for display.
The idea is to question ideas of jewellery and what is wearable.
Bring a camera or phone to document experiments and outcomes.
The masterclass is limited to 10 people.
Cost: $300
Dates: Saturday 27 March and Sunday 28 March, 9:30-3:00
Venue: Refinery ArtSpace, 114 Hardy Street, Nelson
