Art Camp has been postponed 'til later in 2020. The new date will be announced asap. Love you xoxo

LEADERS & WORKSHOPS 

Colour & Collage with Emily Green 

Emily Green is a Melbourne based artist, jewellery and accessories designer whose bright and vibrant work explores bold patterning and clever colour combinations. Emily Green is represented by Craft Victoria and her work is stocked by The National Gallery of Australia and other selected museums and boutique stores in Australia and internationally. Emily is truly the queen of colour and we can't wait to see her process in action!

Drawing & Stencilling with Lucas Grogan

Come spend some time with the one and only Lucas Grogan before he gets too famous to speak to any of us. Grogan is an internationally infamous art legend known for his hilarious and heartbreaking masterpieces - many of which hang in major galleries all over the world.

It’ll be fun. Grogan is hilarious. Grogan’s practise spans multiple disciplines. He has collaborated with major brands (and said fuck no to more). He’s widely disliked but curiously respected. You're gonna LOVE him.

(PLUS he's going to be hosting Trivia Night - it's going to be a turn up for the books!)

 Weaving with Maryann Talia Pau

We are dying of excitement that our ultimate girl crush, Maryann Talia Pau, is coming to Art Camp 2020!! Maryann is a Samoan-Australian artist and practising weaver based in the Redland's, Quandamooka Country, Queensland. Maryann’s weaving practice is based on exchange and collaboration. Born in Samoa and raised in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand & Australia, she is a maker of 'Pasifika bling' and co-founder of the Pacific Women's Weaving Circle and Super Native Unlimited. In 2012 she founded the One Million Stars to End Violence project - an international weaving project inviting the public to weave one million stars as symbols of light and peace. The resulting installation was part of Festival 2018 during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. What a total legend!

Polymer Clay Floral Plaque Making with Madeleine Stamer

 Superstar Madeleine Stamer balances family, exhibiting and creating small runs of limited edition and open edition prints, art pieces and collaborative projects from her home studio in the leafy suburbs of Melbourne. Madeleine's folk infused images display rich decorative line and bold pattern. Her work has been described as captivating meditations on life and death, nature and culture. Part tattoo, part Australiana, part pattern, Madeleine's works take the eye on an excursion along a decorative, dark and highly idiosyncratic line. She's also the most delightful bundle of sunshine, dry humour and creativity that you will ever meet!

Shibori Indigo Dyeing with Home-Work

We are going to take you to BLUE HEAVEN in this Shibori dyeing workshop. You will learn all the basics plus some special tips and tricks to create your own indigo masterpieces! Creative duo Lara Davies & Jess Wright have been working as textile designers and screen printing teachers all over the world for the past decade.

As well as workshops, Home-Work have delivered and marketed numerous craft markets, exhibitions, design collaborations and corporate events. 

Painting with Melissa Grisancich

Born in 1987, Melissa is a legendary Melbourne based artist. Her work maintains a firm ethos of using found or recycled objects and she insists on making her works entirely by hand. Her work reflects her interest in surrealism, 60's and 70's record and poster graphics, iconography, symbolism, vintage ephemera and comics. Melissa has gained a reputation for curating the most exciting must-see exhibitions in Australia. Her stunning artworks have been exhibited locally and internationally including San Francisco, Japan and France. We are so excited to get an insight into Mel's creative practices!

 Where is Art Camp 2020?

Art Camp 2020 is returning to the awesome "Camp Wyuna" in Queenscliff, Victoria! It's about an 1.5 hour drive from Melbourne via the M1 and Bellarine Highway. You can also take the train to Geelong Station and then the Route 56 bus to Queenscliff. If water travel is more your jam, you can catch the Port Phillip Ferry from the Docklands to Portarlington and then jump on a bus to Queenscliff!
