    Whites Creek Cottage

    In association with Whites Creek Cottage, Edge Creative Trails (Inner West Council) and supported by ARTcycle Inc., a series of workshops exploring the materials traditionally associated with fine art as used by Artist In Residence, Gilbert Grace, (http://gilbertgrace.com).

Hemp was the feedstock for canvas, cordage, clothing and the seed made a fine porrage. Rag pickers collected fabric to make paper which until the 1880s was largely hemp. In this workshop participate will be instructed in a simplified version of paper making using easily accessible equipment and materials, including a human powered bicycle blender...
