Creative Women in Focus is a special event featuring Melbourne shoemaker and accessory master, Emma Greenwood.
Emma has carved herself out a unique space in the world. Her brilliantly off beat handmade kicks reference everything from Victorian needlepoint to hip hop culture and her spectacular shoes have won awards, been exhibited around Australia and have featured in numerous publications both in Australia and overseas.
Using a variety of materials such as leather, postage stamps, electrical wire, and handmade textile trims, Emma’s pieces are highly tactile and precious, referencing a love of colour, humour, symmetry and silhouette.
“My practice focuses on the manipulation of leather into bold sculptural forms. I combine traditional skills of leatherworking, jewellery and textile arts to produce footwear and accessories with a sense of experimentation and contemporary direction”.
Emma will speak as part of the 2018 "Creative Women in Focus" series about her life and creative work.
Cost: $20 Adults, $18 Members, $15 Concession/Students
