Docklands Art Collective March Wrap

27 Feb 2018

Docklands Art Collective March Wrap Image

Here’s what the resident artists down at The District are doing this month.

Tree Paper Comics

Tree Paper Comics is a new, independent publisher and printer of Australasian graphic novel and comics. Founder Sam Emery features iconic Melbourne locations in his own comics and is hosting Social Drawing Night each Tuesday night at 5.30 until May 29. Participation is by gold coin donation, and it is intended to be a safe space of creative encouragement, not art critique. Bring paper, pencils etc!

Trash Puppets

Trained puppeteer and puppetsmith Jhess Knight started Trash Puppets after realising she liked her “mock-up” puppets – thrown together with basic materials or “trash” – more than her polished ones. Now Trash Puppets runs puppet-making workshops for the young and old, from corporate entities to schools. They are running a Crash Course for Beginners (adults 16+) on Thursday nights between March 15 and May 10. The eight-week course costs $350, materials included. Book here: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=353746&bof=1

Artists Guild

The Artists Guild is an innovative art hub and community that provides peer support for female artists to create, connect and collaborate. On March 16 and 23 from 7.30pm – 8.30pm they are holding Make+Talk sessions and you are invited! Join facilitator Emily Raubenheimer to make stitched embroidery pieces to contribute to their International Women’s Day exhibition. Tea, coffee and materials included. It’s free, no prior skills are needed and neither are bookings, but bring wool if you’ve got some lying around.

Life-Drawing Classes

Three of DAC’s resident artist teams are getting together to offer life-drawing classes every Thursday at 6.30pm until June 28. Tree Paper Comics, At Current Gallery and The Artists Guild will all be down at the Tree Paper Comic space to help you hone your skills, open to all levels. Costs are $20 per person, or $15 for concession.

Dodgy Paper

Dodgy Paper makes their paper by-hand, using their own sustainable technique using all recycled materials, right in front of you in their factory/retail space/gallery at The District. They are running an exhibition of Adam Osemrs’ work with dodgy paper – “We Could Build a House” – until March 9.
