Using Found Objects to Create Characters: Hannakin Workshop
Hanna Mancini is the versatile creative behind popular Melbourne label 'Hannakin'. Her work, which spans multiple mediums including sweet watercolour and collage illustrations, as well as hand sewn soft sculptures incorporating new and up-cycled materials, has been exhibited all over Australia and internationally, and she regularly attends local and interstate design events with her whimsical illustrations and handmade creations.
In this 3hr workshop, students will be inspired by Hanna's work, specifically her character creation and her whimsical imaginary worlds where these creatures come to life, and learn to incorporate collage to add texture and depth. Students will work alongside Hanna to learn that found objects and old materials which have a past life, can inspire the creation of new works and ideas.
Bookings for this class can also be made via phone or email.

Gloworm Studios is a warm and nurturing environment where artists both young and young at heart are invited to immerse themselves in their creativity and imagination.
Marianna Marx has taught art alongside her illustration career for the past 10 years. Her experiences include working in the education department at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, an artist residency at Caulfield Grammar School, one on one art tutoring for children and adults, after school art classes, corporate workshops and working alongside artists with intellectual disabilities. Marianna has taken insight from each of these experiences to create an art school of her own where she can share her love for creative expression with others in her local community.
