As part of the virtual exhibition, TRUE LIES (and alibis) Wyndham Art Gallery will be hosting a free online, Sunday Salon workshop.
Join artist, Deanne Gilson, a proud Wadawurrung woman of Aboriginal and Australian/English descent as she talks about her connection to Country and introduces the shield as a metaphor of protection in this live workshop session delivered via Zoom.
Workshop participants will be led by Deanne to explore their own heritage and personal stories through the creation of a shield.
The workshop draws inspiration from Julie Gough’s work that is embedded in history and personal narrative.
Open to ages 15+ years old.
Anything you have available at home to draw, colour in, paint or write with.
