In partnership with the Jewish Museum of Australia, CAE are excited to offer a unique course inspired by the iconic soft sculptures of the late Mirka Mora.  Meet at the Jewish Museum of Australia for the first session and draw on inspiration from the fabulous works on display at the Mirka exhibition.

Sessions 2 to 5 will be held at the CAE where you’ll be guided through the basics of soft sculpture.  You will learn:

  • How to create a pattern
  • How to stitch
  • Techniques for painting your sculpture
  • What permanent inks, markers and acrylics can be used to paint fabric

Design your own feminist icon or create one from a template provided in the class designed by artist and tutor, Anne Thoday.

At the end of the course you will have created your own feminist icon soft sculpture and will have all the skills you need to create more in your own time.
