Saturday 24th August 2019


2.00pm - 4.00pm


Ararat Gallery TAMA



Through the support of Ararat Rural City Council and Creative Victoria’s Full House Program, Ararat Gallery TAMA invites you to participate in a free Upcycled Fashion Workshop with artist Hannah Gartside. You will learn practical, hand-sewing skills and how to re-use materials, as well as discussing ways to creatively re-frame the way we think about our everyday environment. This workshop will accompany Fantasies, Hannah’s solo exhibition at TAMA.

Fantasies is an ongoing series of sculptural works that have been crafted from re-purposed women’s undergarments. These translucent sculptures explore connection and dissolving, curiosity for new sensations and the strangeness of being in a body.

Hannah Gartside received a Bachelor of Fine Art (Sculpture) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2016. Prior to her visual art training, Gartside received a BFA in Fashion Design from Queensland University of Technology, and worked as a costume-maker for the Queensland ­­Ballet Company for five years.

This workshop is FREE but bookings are essential. Please phone the Gallery on 5355 0220 or email gallery@ararat.vic.gov.au

Ages: 9+ (children must be accompanied by an adult)
