——————

TINTYPE PHOTOBOOTH 

The Analogue Laboratory will be running a nineteenth century photobooth and offering impromptu portrait sittings using the wet plate collodion photographic process. Employing a portable darkroom, weird old cameras and silver, they can record your likeness on a sheet of blackened metal for the express purpose of confusing your great grandchildren. Photographs will be available to purchase on the night. Silly faces encouraged but not compulsory.($50)


BESPOKE CHRISTMAS WREATHS

Fleurs de Nadia Flowers will be popping up on Friday evening to offer bespoke Christmas Wreath workshops and sell beautiful floral arrangements. The workshops will include a wreath base made from vine/twigs and an Australian native selection of dried and fresh material to make a bespoke wreath for the festive season. Learn how to combine flowers and greenery creatively with instructions given on how to spruce up for Christmas Day. Starting at 5.30pm and 7pm. ($35)


POM POMS

Back by popular demand… Have fun making a gorgeous and colourful pom-pom with installation artist, Monica Prichard, in your favourite colour, perfect to brighten up your outfit, your accessories, your home, or your life! Free, all weekend.


CYANOTYPE WORKSHOP: BLUEPRINTING FUN

Join the Analogue Laboratory for free introductory hands-on sessions in the cyanotype photographic process. A fun and magical colour-changing technique that can be carried out without a darkroom – this process is why the ‘blueprints’ for buildings were ever blue in the first place. Sensitise paper, dry it and then expose it to light in contact with an object or drawn image on tracing paper to create a one-of-a-kind print. Suitable for children under supervision and adults who like to make things. (Free)


SPARKLE-SPANGLE SEQUIN BALLS 

Add bling, sparkle, texture and pattern to your day with Carclew and South Australian artist Carly Snoswell. Create your own unique brightly coloured sequined balls and baubles perfect for the Christmas tree. (Free)


INSITU PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO

Watch commercial photographer Craig Arnold from She Creative, host a real-time photography studio, shooting a range of products from Bowerbird’s talented stallholders.


ANIMATED PORTRAITS 

Have your portrait sketched by Welly Wonders’ key artist Adam Murphy, who spent 20 years as an artist at Disney, and as a lead artist and animator at Lucas Films and Animal Logic. (Stall 92)


GIFT WRAPPING
