Melissa Cameron regularly issues a design challenge to herself. How many different objects can she create from one pattern?
This is your chance to see what you can create during the One Design Workshop using Melissa’s guiding principles. You’ll be part of a group working to make at least 10 fresh pieces of work from the same laser cut design in timber.
The class will take place in the gallery space, to ensure that the new works do not duplicate any of the pieces already in the gallery. The only additions to the palette are silk thread and a set of artist-made brooch pins, though of course you can sand and treat the timber. All of the elements of the pattern must be used, and the works must all be wearable.
The new works will be displayed in the gallery alongside the metal pieces – and you’ll be acknowledged alongside your work – plus you can take your work home at the end of the exhibition.
Melissa Cameron’s 2012 exhibition netted 38 unique works from her AutoCad drawn and laser cut Untitled: Pattern in metal #4 piece. They were displayed as a suite of unique jewellery and objects created from a duplicate single A4 sheet of laser cut forms. How many can she create this year from a piece half the size?
