The Kombi Project - workshops, exhibitions, storytelling and free public mural.
Bag End Studio and The Artist Tree proudly present the Kombi Project as part of BAD in Yerongpilly’s growing creative precinct.
The Kombi – old, chronically flawed, and ridiculously expensive – never fails to bring on familiar smiles and treasured stories and has become an unlikely lifestyle icon for good times, adventure, and memories of better days. Owners invest an enormous amount of time, money and care into their Kombis ensuring that despite the older they get and the harder to fix they remain valuable, relevant, and beloved.
We propose that the Kombi is a great symbol to value growing old and if handled with care it is possible to tackle the pressing issues of aged care. Help us celebrate this icon with our Kombi-themed art and craft workshops, join our exhibition (all genres welcomed), tell us your Kombi stories, or make your mark on our free public mural.
Workshops include making your own recycled Kombi jewellery with a Intro to Metalsmithing with Meekz Contemporary Jewellery, a Mixed Media Kombi Art Class by The Artist Tree featuring background layering and moving beyond the blank canvas, and a Pixelated Kombi Macrame Wall Hanging by Macrame Sweetness.
