Meet the Maker: Lads with Looms

Meet the Maker: Lads with Looms

Studio A artists Adam Mandarano and Damian Showyin are working to keep Sydneysiders warm in winter, producing woven wraps, loop scarves and sometimes even contemporary cushion covers. These blokes are never happier than when they’re at the loom. On Friday 13 October Adam and Damian will be weaving in store, offering first-hand experience of how their textile works are produced. Come along to see the artists in action and stay for a chat as both Adam and Damian are keen to take questions.

Studio A staff will also be on hand to discuss how they support both artists. Studio A is a supported studio providing professional development to artists with intellectual disabilities.

Details: Friday 13 October, 11am – 1pm
