Artisan: Our Kind of Playground

Simon Degroot, Shape Poems (2017), laser cut acrylic, approx. 35 x 50cm

The connections between space, touch, play and making are celebrated in Our Kind of Playground at Artisan.

This exciting new exhibition invites visitors to have an immersive experience. They are encouraged to touch, reassemble and understand through the action of play while interacting with works and ‘play spaces’.

Drawing the visitor to physically engage with exploring material and design thinking, Our Kind of Playground reaffirms Artisan’s thoughts on the universality of craft and design. The exhibition is curated by Kellee Uhr and will feature artists Lincoln Austin, Simon Degroot and Anna Varendorff.

Our Kind of Playground launches Artisan’s program of exhibitions and public programs for the year. There will be free family activities on opening day. Activities include: interactive ‘play spaces’; drop-in workshops: flower crown making with Daisy and Co; pinch pot making with Pru Morrison, bush-jewellery with Rebecca Ward; and artist demo by printmaker Kay Watanabe.
