The handmade photographs with Andrew Dearman

13 May, 12 noon – 2pm

We often think of the photograph as being like a window—a frame that we look through into the space of another time or place. Making photographs with the processes that were used in the mid 1800s gives an insight into the complex processes behind the magic of this window.

Join renowned Adelaide artist, Andrew Dearman, at his photography demonstration The Handmade Photographs with his portable darkroom (pictured above) for the South Australian History Festival 2017.

This special event coincides with Andrew Dearman’s exhibition, The still and moving image, (8 May – 2 June) and also the Asylum to Art School tours (13 May) at Adelaide Central School of Art.

Flame Painted Metal Mesh Basketry and Sculpture

Tutor: Lanny Bergner (USA)
3 days: Friday 13th to Sunday 15th Oct, 9.30am – 4.30pm

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn flame painting with Lanny Bergner, a mixed media sculptor, fibre, basketry and installation artist who lives in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Lanny uses industrially-woven bronze, brass, aluminium and stainless steel mesh which he embellishes with heat coloration, silicone, wire and glass frit, to create ethereal, semi-transparent organic sculptural forms, geometric structures, installations, vessels, and tables.
In this workshop, learn to apply and control heat from a propane torch to “flame paint” and pattern stainless steel mesh. Design a vessel or 3d form, translate your design into a series of 2-d pieces, and use simple bending, folding, hand-modelling and joining methods to form it into beautiful vessels or sculptural forms. Add embellishments to create unique and beautiful artworks.
