Internationally acclaimed artist, lacemaker and teacher of contemporary bobbin lace Pierre Fouche is coming to Perth and delivering an exciting masterclass series on lacemaking and its design in three levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced, PLUS a FREE Illustrated Lecture as part of Fremantle Design Week!
With a deep respect for technique, tradition, and innovation, Pierre's practice includes macrame and drawn thread embroidery, alongside traditional art media too - he is equally confident as a painter, sculptor and draftsman. These multi-skills lend beautifully to the creative approach of his classes, which encourage technical, design thinking as well as imaginative flair.
Pierre recently exhibited his enthralling installations at John Curtin Gallery in the IOTA21 exhibition 'Curiosity & Rituals of the Everyday'.
Currently, all three of Pierre's masterclasses are SOLD OUT but can come along to Pierre's Illustrated Lecture on Friday 21 October - which is FREE to attend!
This is a special opportunity to hear Pierre's story and learn about his artistic lace-making practice. It will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 pm at the NWS Shipping Theatre at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle. Bookings are essential - secure your place here.
This event is supported by the WA Museum and IOTA: Indian Ocean Craft Triennial - Australia. For more information on the event, please see www.makerandsmith.com.au/events/pierre-fouche-classes and follow Maker&Smith at Facebook and Instagram.
