Tips & Tricks Sessions

Note: All Tips & Tricks days, unless otherwise stated, are held at:

Primrose Park Art & Craft Centre
Matora Lane, off lower Young Street
Cremorne, NSW

It is a condition of entry to all events that closed in shoes are worn and any specific safety issues identified prior to, or during, each individual event is observed.

These meetings are an opportunity to share ideas, experiences and techniques without the structure of a workshop with a tutor, and maybe find out the answers to those questions you’ve had. They are a lot more informal and rely on input from all attendees.

TIME:  10am to 4.00pm.
COST:  $10 for members and $20 for non-members.
DETAILS:  Further details will be available closer to the date of each T&T day.

2018 Calendar:

February 10: Playing with Size

What is size and why do we need to size some paper? How many sorts of size are there? When do we use which one?

This will be a day of experimenting with various types of size to understand what the effect of each one is and when we would use it.

April 12: Joomchi

Joomchi is an ancient traditional Korean making paper technique making paper from mulberry bark using just water. Up to 20 layers can be fused this way.

At its simplest it could be called a form of paper felting. The technique creates strong, textured surfaces that were at one time used as a substitute for cloth and used for clothing and bags. It can be layered with colour, split and holed, stitched, painted, embellished or overlaid in a collage. Its uses are only limited by the imagination. Today it is used to make art, sculpture, surface design, collage, bowls, bags, clothing, etc..

July 26: With only an A4 sheet of paper


Due to refurbishments at Primrose Park Art & Craft Centre this session will be held at:

Geddes Room, North Sydney Council, 200 Miller Street, North Sydney
Times and pricing remain the same (see top of page)

What can be done with only an A4 sheet of paper – and maybe a pair of scissors and some glue?

This day will explore some of the things you can make such as boxes, bags, books etc. It will rely on participants sharing ideas of what can be done and the easiest way of doing them.
