We will be running two workshops during the exhibition at Craft.


A phenokistoscope is an early animation device, back when animation was as much a handcraft as knitting or embroidery. Discs are specially cut and divided into even sections and a sequence of images is added to them which becomes a moving image when spun.

Participants will be creating animated sequences using various techniques: embroidery, appliquĂ©, crochet, knitting or collage. Whatever your favourite handcraft is, you can make a sequence onto one of Dell and Isobel’s templates. Finished sequences are invited to be part of the exhibition, and will be played on the phenokistoscope machine at Craft in Gallery 1.

11am-3pm Saturday 9 November 2013

Stellar Exchange

Learn how to weave an 8 point star with Maryann Talia Pau, Dell Stewart and Kate Matthews, similar to the ones used in their animation collaboration. Take home your star (just in time for Christmas) or donate them to the stellar installation called '1 Million Stars to End Violence' for The Big Design Market at The Royal Exhibition Building Dec 6, 7 & 8.
