STEELING BEAUTY:  Chain Making With Steel Wire
Saturday and Sunday 31st August and 1st September, 9.30am to 4.00pm
Fee: $270.00

In the search for interesting materials with which to create, the greatest surprises can come from the most unexpected quarters. Take, for example, a cheap, ubiquitous and unassuming roll of steel wire, sold for use in the construction industry… With some simple tools and layman-ready information, this mundane material comes thrillingly to life. Super-strong, versatile and – best of all - beautiful, this amazing wire can perform like no other material can.

Join internationally-known artist and found-object ‘stuffsmith’ Keith Lo Bue as he delves into the world of steel wire creativity. Whether you’re interested in jewellery, sculpture, mixed-media, textiles or any number of other creative pursuits,  STEELING BEAUTY will provide in-depth information and instruction on safely, efficiently and properly working with and caring for this magic stuff.  No previous metals experience necessary, just enthusiasm and the desire to learn. Create beautiful things with steel wire from one of the artists responsible for bringing it to a mainstream audience and making it such a popular alternative to precious metals.

POETRY IN MOTION: Making Marvellous Mobiles

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 2nd, 3rd and 4th September, 9.30am to 4.00pm
Fee: $405.00

Discover and explore the fantastic, kinetic world of the mobile with international artist Keith Lo Bue at the wheel. His sheer joy in the medium is infectious. This workshop celebrates that excitement as he guides you through making hanging and table-standing mobiles that spin, wobble, dart and drift, seemingly defying gravity. A minimum of tools and materials are needed to create complex kinetic structures of wire, metal, wood, paper – even found objects.  As always, Keith will reveal unique techniques and tricks not available anywhere else. You and those around you will be mesmerised as your creations spring to life before your eyes. It’s time to welcome some serious balance into your life!

Monday and Tuesday 9th and 10th September, 9.30am to 4.00pm
Fee: $270.00

Learn one of the most versatile and strong connection methods and leave that glue in your drawer! Whatever the materials used, hand-made rivets can often be employed to strengthen and enhance your assemblage work or jewellery. Recommended for anyone interested in attaching objects securely. Several variations on rivets will be explored. Get it together and keep it together…
