Spend your school holidays refining your skills, meeting like-minded peers, and getting to know one of Melbourne’s most exciting emerging artists. Create your own unique piece of wearable jewellery or embellish a favourite piece of clothing in this wearable fashions workshop.

Artist and Facilitator: Louise Meuwissen works in textiles, embroidery, sculpture and installation. Through labour intensive manipulation of recycled and found materials, she explores the tensions between luxury, consumption, beauty and the weight of adornment. Meuwissen graduated from painting at the Victorian Collage of the Arts in 2013, and has exhibited extensively in Australia and New Zealand. Recent projects have been presented at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Craft Victoria, Spring 1883 and Sydney Contemporary.
