Reliquary Design at the fabulous Bakehouse Studio in Marrickville

The beautiful Bakehouse Studio at 54 Renwick Street, Marrickville (Sydney) was open today for the Marrickville Open Studio Trail (MOST).  People streamed in all day to admire the art and craft on display and to talk to the people who created them.  Here is my gorgeous spot in the light filled studio along with works by Lisa Hoelzl (who owns the studio and is a multidisciplinary artist),  Carol Hudson, Jo Boag, Cally Bruer.  The studio will be open tomorrow as well, between 11am and 4pm – free – everyone welcome.

‘Radiant Resin Jewellery’ Workshop, Wed 18th March by Marika Varady – Reliquary Design

Last Wednesday was my big workshop at the new Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Cancer Centre in Camperdown, Sydney, Australia.

They have a program called the Living Room where patients and their families can participate in art and craft workshops to take their mind off their treatments and create something inspiring and beautiful.  This is such a worthwhile program and I am happy to have been able to contribute.

We made resin pendants with objects that they either brought with them or from Australian gum nuts, leaves and bark that I took along for them.  Then we made a wire wrapped basket for an agate gemstone.

Here is a picture of the living room.  For copyright and privacy reasons I can’t include the participants, but here is the set up and I will post some of the work produced during the workshop soon.
