Workshop description: Join artist Lily Cummins to create an under the sea creature. Participants will use felt, thread and stuffing to create their own squishy, squashy sea animal. Students will develop their skills and understanding of shape and colour as well as their fine motor skills as they thread and sew their construction using basic stitching techniques
Artist description: Lily Cummins is an artist based on Gundungurra land (Southern Highlands, NSW). Her practice examines both the self and the emotive bonds and attachments people develop to places, through investigative mark making and colour theory. Cummins’ practice is intuitive and relies on her imagination to conjure up scenes of nostalgia for a memory the audience will never know or a place they have never been. However, the familiarity of these enigmatic places is deliberate as Cummins draws on her own memories to weave a dream-like patchwork of dissonant colours and marks.
