‘ll Show You My Craft If You Show Me Yours is a collaborative project designed to bring together people from different crafts to share processes, materials, and ideas.
As education is one of the main objectives of the establishment of Northcity4, our focus will be on education during our residency in Gallery 3. We have developed four workshops that reflect the different aspects of Northcity4 – mentorships, seminars, access studios and workshops. These workshops are also geared towards exploring professional practice.
The installation that we will create in Gallery 3 supports this by integrating these four areas : workshops, community, creativity and our public programs into four different installations within the one space.
Not only will there be workshops, we will also have a constructed display of a jewellers bench with the tools of the trade displayed. There’ll be an interactive chalk board, there’ll be projections of workshops run at Northcity4, there’ll be cardboard cut outs of our favourite tools and there’ll be the opportunity to ‘Be A Tool’!!
We’ll show you our Craft if you show us yours. Come and get a taste of what Northcity4 has to offer.
