Port Adelaide artists, Kalyna Micenko and Bob Daly have received a grant to produce large appliqued flags to celebrate the start of the 2018 Tour Down Under in Port Adelaide.
They are now scheduling community workshops to design these flags for The Port’s streets and have invited PortBUG’s participation. The workshops will take place at Gallery Yampu (1 Jenkins St, Birkenhead) or at their studio in Port Adelaide.
Workshop participants will do a simple pencil design to the theme of ‘Port River Life’ then:
- cut and pin nylon in the shape of the picture design
- attach it to the flag base which is about 1m x 1m in size.
No words – just pictures. The flags will then be completed by Bob and Kalyna. After the TDU the flags will be owned by PAEC and available for community use.
Young people can take part if working alongside an adult. Bob and Kalyna will provide all materials & this is a free activity.
A special workshop just for the PortBUG could occur on a weekend morning or afternoon. The workshop would take about 2-3 hours maximum. Dates available are all Saturdays and Sundays from Nov 4 – Dec 10th except Nov 11th.
If you are interested in attending a flag-design workshop please contact Sam (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP indicating when you prefer to attend.
