Design and make a glamorous showgirl headdress inspired by Kylie's outfits on this two-day course, led by artist Anna Creighton.
For adults of all abilities, no experience necessary.
What is the course?
Be inspired by our Kylie exhibition and turn yourself into a designer. You are invited to design and make a glamourous showgirl headdress using flamboyant materials where there are no limitations to what you can create! The workshops will begin with a tour of the exhibition where we will take ideas about colour, texture and design from the works on show. In the studios we will plan the headdresses on paper, using elements of collage to influence the actual pieces.
Each day there will be 2 x 2 hour sessions 11am-1pm and 2-4pm
You need to attend all sessions.
Who is teaching the course?
Anna Creighton works regularly as a freelance artist at MAG and graduated in Embroidery. She sells and exhibits her own artwork as well as working in a range of community and health settings delivering art projects.
Who is it for?
The course is designed for all levels of ability and particularly aimed at beginners. Just come with an open mind and be up for experimenting with different materials. You don’t need to know how to sew to do this course!
What do I need to bring?
Nothing! All the materials will be provided.
What about lunch?
There will be a one hour lunch break. Lunch will not be provided, however there will be hot drinks available. You can bring your own lunch and eat it in our education studios. Or you can try our delicious café! There are other places to eat in the nearby area.
What if I find out I can’t come?
Places are limited and there may be people who are on a waiting for a place. If you can’t come for any reason please notify the gallery as soon as possible. We may be able to refund your money, if the cancellation is made a week before.
