The Made by Hand exhibition explores the connect (or disconnect) between artists and artisans:
"An artist is a person who performs any of the creative arts. This can range from painting to music. An artisan, on the other hand, is a skilled worker who makes things by hand"
SMS sessions seek to support each young artist to express their own unique voice while exploring artistic mediums. Below is a summary of each upcoming workshop, each workshop runs from 10am to 11:30am.
