CraftED: A-Louring Objects with Anne Steves
September 7 at12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
MAWA artist in residence, Anne Steves invites the community to participate in an A-Luring Object workshop as part of her ongoing research into making/learning processes and how they can connect the community to the environment. In the A-Luring Object(s) project, Steves is working with the methods of making common to the production of fly-fishing lures on the BC coast in an attempt to ‘capture’ community collaboration.
The artist will ask participants to follow a series of instructions that describe the making of fanciful fishing lures while drawing upon their own notions of attraction, irritation and mimicry. Visitors will be provided with a selection of materials to work with including those traditional to fly tying, home making and textile arts. Participants will take home their unique ‘lure’ after documentation to be added to a future gallery installation.
Workshop Runs: September 7th, 12 – 3 pm
Free drop-in workshop. No registration required.
