Studio Hacienda opening at Workshop Bilk…

Workshop Bilk hosted a cash ‘n carry treat for contemporary jewellery afficionados at the opening of Blanche Tilden and Phoebe Porter’s Studio Hacienda exhibition/event, General Assembly, in Queanbeyan last night. There was no rest for the wicked artists, however, who found themselves obliged to work throughout the entire reception, so great was the demand for their services.

The show is prefaced on a pick ‘n mix spontaneous production line – whereby punters are encouraged to choose from a variety of interchangeable components to design a brooch, which is then handed immediately over to the artists to literally knock up, in situ, while they watch and wait.

It’s a very cute concept – and a rather nice play on performance/collaboration between the artist-journeyman and the customer. And hugely successful if one can judge from  the spanking trade of that first evening…

The event runs over the weekend – so if your hankering to express yourself in a classic Studio Hacienda kind of way, then you’d best head across the border pronto and get cracking.

The crafty dahhhling brigade was out in force, naturally…
