Crafty Party with Hiromi Tango

Weave some magic into your Thursday evening.

Inspired by her remarkable residency, 花弁 Hanabira (Gentle Petal) join artist Hiromi Tango for a very special Crafty Party that celebrates healing and joy.

For one night only, we welcome you into the exuberant world of Hiromi Tango, a vibrant celebration of colour and sculptural form. During this special workshop, you’ll explore Hiromi’s study of cyclical peptides, a miracle of a natural medicine which will help inspire you to sculpt bold organic shapes. Using special weaving techniques, Hiromi will guide you through turning pre-loved silks and materials into a wearable piece of art.

At the end of the workshop Hiromi will invite you to stay on for a gentle celebration with the group, full of music and joy.

Workshop includes:
  • 2.5 Hour Artist-Led workshop by Hiromi Tango
  • A glass of bubbles thanks to our friends at Symphony Hill Wines, or a soft drink
  • Nibbles
  • All materials provided

Please note: To make your work truly special, attendees are encouraged to bring along a piece of fabric/string/ribbon that holds special significance to them to incorporate into their creation.

We respectfully acknowledge Warunghu, Aunty Raelene Baker’s insight, conversation and participation in developing this project. We thank Molly Green for her commitment, generosity and contribution. Hiromi would also like to extend her personal thanks to her representative gallery, Sullivan + Strumpf; Professor David Craik, Wendy Mansell, Bronwyn Adams, Eva Bunker and The University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB); Chris Radman, Nathan Simmons and Salty Dog Media; Lisa Behan, Kim Best and Ayuko Oba; Kitty Taube; and Henry Collins and Taj Morgan.

About Hiromi Tango

Hiromi Tango creates spaces for expression, healing and transformation. She applies scientific understandings of the brain – including epigenetics and neuroplasticity – to her work, and frequently collaborates with experts in neuroscience. She produces sculptural installations that invite audience engagement and often incorporate performance.

Hiromi’s process is cumulative; she weaves, wraps and stitches over everyday objects and materials before joining them together to construct immersive environments. Through engaging all the senses, the artist redirects attention to our bodies and sharpens our emotional awareness. Her participatory workshops, performances and installations encourage us to reflect more meaningfully upon ourselves and our social connections.
