Beginning with an artist talk, Simone will guide you through the many unique materials and processes she utilises with her sculpture and installations.

Working with a child's doll you will use experimental techniques and materials to transform the doll into a hybrid creature. Learn how to  build new form onto an existing shape, explore techniques for decorating the final form from natural materials, and make resin face and body attachments.

Complimentary tea/coffee provided. BYO lunch 

Participants must bring a cheap plastic doll (new or second hand) between 20 - 45cm high with arms and legs flexible enough to manipulate and bind together with tape) All other materials will be supplied.

Artist Bio

Simone Eisler’s imaginary sculptural artworks and installations rework animal, plant and fabricated materials and forms. Her artwork draws from myth, fairy tales, history and ecology. The new forms she creates are re-skinned, cast, fractured, and reconfigured. She employs plaster bandage, poured plaster, bones, fur, and fish scales and works with and over existing natural objects and dolls. These artworks are exhibited in galleries or placed together en masse to create sensory gardens or incursions into the landscape. Simone has exhibited her work in the Philippines, Indonesia, New York, Belgium, Paris, Berlin, India and extensively within Australia. She recently created an 8-metre-high metal Trojan horse covered in over 2,000 plants at Southbank in Brisbane.
