In June 2018 Mesh Mash hosted Artists in Residence Brandi Salmon and Paula Reeve from the Institute of Koorie Education at Deakin University. Brandi and Paula both completed a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Arts at Deakin University and were seeking further opportunities to expand their art practice in a professional setting. Our print facilitator Ellise Roberts spent some time with them both, teaching them design and screen printing techniques.
Outcomes from the residency were that we got some wonderful prints for our product range. Paula and Brandi hosted an artist talk and workshop at Woods Street Arts Space engaging the local community in Indigenous history and cultural experiences with 12 people attending and doing printmaking with the artists.
