AGWA – The Bird Makers Project with Co:3

08/10/2020 - 08/10/2020 AGWA – The Bird Makers Project with Co:3

Calling all makers to join the birdsong! School Holiday Bird-Making Workshops with Co:3 at AGWA. The Bird Makers Project is a Co:3 Australia global initiative devised by Artistic Director, Raewyn Hill and International Artist, Naoko Yoshimoto. Join Co:3 these school holidays for a FREE, 2.5-hour family-friendly textiles workshop, where you will be guided by an expert bird maker to transform an item of black clothing into a blackbird, destined for the stage in 2021!

The Bird Makers Project metaphorically expresses the hidden narratives and embedded memories of humanity through the fabric of the clothes we wear every day. Workshop participants are asked to bring a piece of black clothing and their personal story of migration, isolation, or a meaning behind the garment used to create their blackbird. At the end of the workshop, your bird will be collected and become part of a flock of 1001 birds used in the set of Artistic Director Raewyn Hill’s new production, ARCHIVES OF HUMANITY, premiering in 2021.
