Final workshops for Streaky’s Visible

Adelaide artists Kaspar Schmidt Mumm, Emmaline Zanelli and their team will deliver the final art workshop for Streaky Bay this month as part of the ‘Primal: Ephemeral Eco Art Residency’.

The free Cardboard Studio by the Sea workshops will take place from Tuesday, January 8 until Sunday, January 13.

The workshops are open to people of all ages, who are invited to embark on an artistic no holds barred costume-building spree using recycled cardboard and natural materials.

Additionally, the team of artists will construct and decorate a large outdoor sculptural set for workshop participants to be photographed in, in their costumes.

Visible creative producer Jayne Holland said people would be surprised by all the interactive and creative possibilities as they helped to create an evolving installation, while making their own costume and catching all the fun and quirky art on video with music. 

The ‘Primal: Ephemeral Eco Art Residency’ has delivered 10 innovative and temporary art installations on the Streaky Bay foreshore since the start of December.

A total of 27 artists from Finland, Australia and regional South Australia have collaborated through an environmental and eco-art theme across three simultaneous eco-art projects.

Artists have creatively and artistically shared with the community across the workshops, ephemeral installations and community engagement sessions to start an eco-art conversation.

The January workshops and installation will bring the project to completion.

Ms Holland said participation and audience numbers had been high and the project – with all elements free to the community – had been well received by the Streaky Bay community and visitors.

The Cardboard Studio sessions will take place at Campbells Landing on the corner of Linklater Street and Eyre Avenue.

There will be one session on Tuesday from 5.30pm to 8pm, with two sessions from Wednesday to Sunday at 10am to 12pm and then 5.30pm to 8pm.
