Jade Dolman and the Fremantle Dockers Women's Association Cultural Day Barbara Bynder

Jade Dolman and Barbara Bynder running art workshops.

Join us for an immersive art experience exploring the richness and diversity of contemporary Aboriginal Australians. Artists Barbara Bynder and Jade Dolman will reflect on the past and bring us into the present in order to gain understanding of today's Aboriginal people, culture and heritage.

Visitors will artistically contribute to a large canvas panel under the guidance of either Barbara (8, 9 & 10 July) or Jade (15, 16 & 17 July). Both artists will take two different approaches, with Barbara responding to localised transformative spaces while Jade will share with you her spirituality and dreaming.

Participants will be encouraged to connect to country while reflecting on how they think about place through painting and good conversation. The final piece will unite all canvas panels as one large collaborative artwork.

Join Barbara or Jade on the hour (11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm) and help make our community canvas a shared experience.

Suitable for ages 5+. No bookings required.
