Workshop: Knitting with Margaret Lewis
Sat May 28 2022 at 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Objectspace | Auckland, AU
About this Event
Join us for introductory craft workshops to understand the basics of using wool in different ways.
Materials will be provided. These workshops are suitable for participants aged 12 years and older.
These workshops sit alongside Wharenui Harikoa at Objectspace, an installation by Lissy Robinson-Cole and Rudi Robinson.
Bringing together bright, neon colours and traditional toi whakairo shapes, Wharenui Harikoa offers a new way of understanding the importance of joy and aroha within te aō Māori.
Margaret Lewis is a contemporary textile artist using traditional crafting techniques (knitting, crochet, embroidery, macrame). Her practice re-contextualises craft through the use of unexpected materials and easily found (and often discarded) items.
Wharenui Harikoa at Objectspace is supported by INZIDE and South Pacific Scaffolding.
