Join ACCA Education and artist Paul Yore for a Professional Development Program with discussions and art-making in response to our current exhibition Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH on Friday 18 November, 10:30am–2 pm.

During the session, artist Paul Yore will give a tour of the exhibition with insight into his practice. This will be followed by a discussion and textile-based art-making session led by ACCA Education where ideas are shared for encountering challenging and thought-provoking artworks in the classroom. The session will explore the relationship between imagery, text and textile, through stitching and fabric collage techniques, and develop new learning activities for the classroom.
