Event Adornment Making Workshop

Adornment Making Workshop

With Chantal Fraser

24 June 2017
3pm–5pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

Artist Chantal Fraser invites you to join her for an afternoon of subversive adornment making.

Fraser uses material culture and adornment in her installation, performances, and digital media works as a method of understanding and exploring her Samoan heritage, politics, culture and identity.

During her workshop, Pariah Protection Adornment Making, Fraser will guide you through the process of making bejewelled eye masks, veils, headwear, and body shields that challenge traditional and colonial signs of authority, trust, and order.

Learn from Fraser her bejewelling techniques to take home your very own handcrafted piece of adornment.

This workshop coincides with Refugee Week, so please join us in celebrating our diverse and multicultural creative community.

Tickets are $20 for IMA members, and $30 for non-members. Purchase tickets for this workshop through Eventbrite here.

  • Chantal Fraser

    Chantal Fraser uses adornment as an aesthetic and conceptual tool for material exploration and production. The work explores the creation of cross-cultural connotations and representations through silhouette and the embodiment of adornment, and more significantly cultural adornment. Fraser’s practice explores ornamentation as an aesthetic resolution to identity and individuality. Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Chantal Fraser is a Brisbane based multi-media artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) from Queensland University of Technology. Fraser has exhibited nationally at various institutions such as QUT Art Museum, University of Queensland Art Museum and Brisbane City Hall (now Museum of Brisbane). Fraser has also been included in exhibitions internationally at institutions such as La Cité internationale des Arts, Paris, Les Brassieres in Belgium and Tjibaou Cultural Centre, New Caledonia.
