CRAFT CUBED: KATHERINE MARMARAS

Multidisciplinary artist Katherine Marmaras will combine photography, drawing and social media to explore the meaning of 'home' through her online photo drawing project, to be featured in this year's Craft Cubed Festival. Katherine encourages others to join her in making art and changing the way they see their most familiar spaces. 

What’s the significance of the handmade to you?

How the essence of the maker is somehow captured in the handmade through the time taken to create.

What is your earliest craft memory?

My earliest memory is seeing my mum crochet and knit.

Where do you go in Melbourne for inspiration?

I'm always inspired by a visit to the National Gallery of Victoria.

What are you reading OR listening to at the moment?

I usually have more than one book on the go. One of those books is Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe which I highly recommend if you wish to learn more about Aboriginal Australia. It's a totally engaging and informative read.

How would you describe your studio or making environment?

A mess. 
A place that has more than one thing on the go but at various stages of completion.
A place to reflect and create.

What other Craft Cubed events are you excited about? 

Night Vision by Troy Emery.
I have never seen his work in real life.
