Grassroots, April 7, 2012
Grass roots is a community event sponsored by Marrickville Council, and supported by INDEX., and ARTcycle. Come down to Simpson Park, for an afternoon with the local community learning to weave traditional basket making using material from the local environment. Peter Williamson, an established art practitioner specializing in contemporary weaving will be leading a workshop in weaving technique using grasses harvested from Simpson Park. ARTcycle will be on hand grinding up fresh fruit smoothies using their newly contrived bycicle driven blender. Grassroots is a celebration of local community, contemporary art, and traditional, human powered technologies.
