A collaborative online making session for kids aged 7+ with an adult supervisor.

Ange Jeffery is a Wiradjuri artist who grew up on Country in central west NSW, with Wambul (Macquarie River) having a lasting influence and inspiration in her art practice. She is an environmental scientist by background who balances her technical ability with creative pursuits, particularly jewellery making.  She also delivers jewellery and weaving workshops for her local community and has completed several commission projects.

Ange’s values are strongly represented in her work using responsibly sourced materials including collected and recycled natural and manmade items.  Her work is organic, combining her culture with contemporary techniques and objects, including ceramics, painting, stencilling, graphics, and jewellery. @ange.jeffery
