TEND Residency + Workshops

 TEND is a creative community engagement residency program, consisting of cultural sharing, art-making and up-skilling of regional migrant artists. Led by artists Sultana Shamshi, Megan Kirwan-Ward and Jacky Cheng, the residency outcomes will contribute to The Junction Co.’s International Indian Ocean Craft Triennial project, TEND, and will be exhibited at the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery+Studio and selected sites around Port Hedland. 

TEND will create authentic, distinctive artworks that tell WA stories.

A range of creative disciplines will be utilised by the resident artists to realise the visual and craft activities of the Port Hedland community, including textile art, jewellery, mixed media and recycled and found objects.

This activity is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Lotterywest  and the Town of Port Hedland. 

Orizome – the art of folding and dyeing Japanese papers.

Jacky is interested in the dynamics of community engagement through revealing individualistic geometrical patterns. She believes community is about acknowledging the diversity and unique qualities within a community, and seeks to explore this through her workshops. The unique Orizome dyed paper will be folded into a specific shape to be part of a large installation of community artwork in the TEND exhibition.

This is an all ages and beginner friendly workshop.
