Hidden is a collection of photographic work created by individuals who have caring responsibilities. The work demonstrates the uniqueness of photography, its ubiquitous nature offering the time-starved an opportunity to create and be included.
Treasured family photographs evoke memories and instigate discussion around those we care for. Everyday objects are placed under studio lights, elevating it’s status to more accurately demonstrate its vital role in the successful play of a day. Pinhole cameras facilitate image making from household waste with long exposure times allowing for multitasking. A still-life is created from found objects, stumbled across when carrying out daily chores. An unpaired glove becomes the starting point of photographic narrative, real or imagined it’s an alternative to reality. Photography has been used to capture a reflection, allowing the subject to play with how they are seen in the world.

A Life Journey through Creativity By Sylvie Stainton
My inspiration as a painter and sculptor comes from what I observe and feel as it echoes from the world we live in. My work is guided by a deep connection to Nature and its Soul: the outer and inner landscapes, the visible and invisible.
Increasingly what happens in the world emerges through forms, shapes, lines, colours and movement as it expresses itself from the raw materials of the canvases, wood and/or stone.
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Design and create your own headdress – join us for a social and fun class, with Sandra, The Creative Goddess.
You will learn how to make a headdress using small hand tools and working with various items and reclaimed materials. Your headdress can be big or small, a theme, wild and wacky! It’s up to you 🙂 We will have style ideas and examples there on the day if you’d like to follow an existing design and we’ll be there to support you if you’d like to create your own design.
All materials and equipment will be provided to create your headdress. You’re very welcome to bring any favoured textiles, wools, jewellery, buttons, flowers etc to add to your headdress.
During the class you will learn:
- what upcycling is and how to become an upcycler
- about different types of headdresses
- what materials you can use to make your headdress
- what tools are needed
- how to form and assemble your headdress
- how to wear and secure your headdress in place
- how to best store and transport your headdress
Headdresses are brilliant for costuming, festivals and for those times when you want to dress up or stand out in a crowd!
There will be a selection of donated and reclaimed materials, including beads and jewellery that you can use to make your upcycled headdress. If you have any specific items or materials that you’d like to include remember and bring them with you on the day. Light refreshments will be provided too.
