Teachers at Children’s Artspace – Legendary Textile Tales with Caitlin Bowe 

6-7pm, Thursday 19 May (Week 3) – Children’s Artspace at Adelaide Festival Centre  

CANCELLED

Mythology and art go hand in hand, a visual exploration of stories originally told by our earliest ancestors. These stories were how our predecessors navigated the world around them, without modern science and discovery. The Children’s Artspace exhibition Legendary Textile Tales seeks to connect students and teachers with their ancestral mythologies and give them the opportunity to place themselves within their textile retellings, connecting them to larger cultural narratives.

In this centrED teacher professional learning workshop, Legendary Textile Tales teaching artist Caitlin Bowe will guide teachers through integrating mythology into the creation of soft sculptures. Teachers will choose symbolic imagery from a myth or fairy-tale and from this, learn how to translate the imagery into the language of patternmaking and textiles. Resulting in dynamic and recognisable two-sided, hand sewn, soft sculptures.
