Brush up with advanced artist workshop from the Bas

Serious creatives and artists can sharpen their skills and find new inspiration at an advanced artist workshop at picturesque Meringo on Saturday 26 March.

World-renowned artist and tapestry weaver Valerie Kirk will work collaboratively with artists in a range of creative activities, discuss concept development and help spark their imagination and discover new directions for their practice.

The advanced workshop is the first in a series of three that expands the public program of the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre. Ready to Write with Julie Keys, and Sensing Ecology with Linda Luke, will be held later this year.

Eurobodalla Council’s creative arts development coordinator Indi Carmichael said the three intensive yet intimate workshops were for aspiring artists keen to develop and extend their practice.

“With the Saturday Sessions proving to be so popular in 2021, we quickly realised some participants were ready for something more advanced that would extend their skills and existing creative practices,” she said.

“These advanced workshops are for the serious artist or creative who may be working towards an installation, exhibition or, in the case of our Ready to Write workshop, a manuscript.

“For this program we teamed up with the Old Dairy at Meringo as the venue, which is set amidst 40 acres of wildlife sanctuary, to really allow the creativity to flourish.”

The full-day workshop is limited to six participants costs $350, including lunch.
