About the Session

Sue-Ching Lascelles's workshop invites participants to create two Aussie icons from felt: a jar of Vegemite and a prawn. So fun!

Join soft sculpture and textile artist Sue-Ching Lascelles to reimagine two Aussie favorites as soft sculptures. The humble Vegemite jar and prawn will be recreated in felt as 3D objects in this fun and very hands on workshop. In this workshop you will learn a number of craft techniques such as stitching, stuffing and using wire to shape soft forms to create your own life-sized sculptures. A fun workshop that will spark the imagination, fosters community and conversation.

Her exhibition history includes; Brisbane Powerhouse, Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, Ararat Regional Gallery, Craft Victoria and Toowoomba Regional Gallery.
