Kids’ Club<br>Create your own personal adornment with Ange Jeffery

These school holidays prepare for the Koorie Art Show Kids and Youth by joining Wiradjuri artist Ange Jeffery in an online jewellery making workshop. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids will be able to come together online to make personalised body adornment – bracelets, necklaces, head pieces – from found natural objects combined with elements from a special pack which will be posted out to families!

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

Registration cut off date: Monday 20 September to receive your special workshop pack on time

If registering past this date or your pack has not arrived, participants can gather their own supplies.

Workshop packs include:

  • A range of wire, elastic, and natural cord
  • A mix of collected items – shells, feathers, man-made items, wood, seeds, possum fur
  • Wooden beads
  • Sand paper
  • Information sheet
  • Entry Form for the Koorie Art Show Kids and Youth.
  • A reply paid postage satchel for you to send your work into The Koorie Hertiage Trust to be part of the Koorie Art Show Kids and Youth.

What to bring to the workshop:

  • Tea towel or hand towel or cloth to plan your work on

  • Pliers to cut and/or bend wire
  • These are optional for you to gather yourself:

This session is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with their parents or carers only.

 

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
