Celebrating one of Sydney’s most loved green spaces, ArtPark turns Hyde Park North into a craft workshop and exhibition space. As a part of Art Park, and in association with Art and About 2010, Object Gallery presents Crafternoon.
Bring your craft project out of the closet and join us in Hyde Park. Be inspired by some of our most eclectic and exciting crafters.
Bring your own materials, or work with some of the existing materials supplied by each workshop host. There will be a focus on reuse and repurpose of materials, so keep in mind we would like you to contribute!
Bring your own: plastic shopping bags, red yarn, toilet paper rolls, old toy parts, crochet hooks, weaving materials, and icy pole sticks

Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 11-3pm
we will be hanging out in the park, chatting and making.
Drop in at any time, and join in on a variety of workshops!!

Reef Knot will be making pin cushion flowers from an array of second hand fabrics and other materials
Denise Litchfield will be transforming discarded plastic toys into junk fashion
Knitty Gritty & Loopy will be using plastic shopping bags to weave baskets and other forms
Cecilie Knowles will be hosting a paper crafting workshop, using scraps of paper that were destined for the rubbish bin
In Stitches will be hosting a collaborative experiment whereby visitors repurpose materials into a larger collective sculpture
Craft Cartel will be crocheting and knitting their soft, decorative explosives.

Don't forget to come and visit the exhibition 'We Craft this City' featuring some of these amazing makers. Exhibition starts on Saturday 2nd October at Object Gallery (417 Bourke St, Surry Hills) and runs till 10 October, with daily 'Crafting Power Hours'. Go to object/spring series for more info.
