The historic Battle of Beersheba in October 1917 is one of the most famous encounters in this campaign which pushed men and their horses to their limits. Horse Power provides us with an opportunity to look at the day-to-day life of these soldiers through their own images and words. Sometimes the glorious moment hides from us the larger story. Presented in partnership with the University of New England. Curated by William Oates, University Archivist. An official event of the Centenary of Beersheba.

Take a simple stitch
Judy Wilford: Stitch as Mark "Take a simple stitch"4 Nov 2017
All artists, regardless of genre, use mark to develop a personal language within their work. Marks are used in specific ways giving emphasis, detail or value to the development of a work. Some use a pencil or pen, some a brush but WE will take a needle, a thread and a simple stitch. Using Straight Stitch in its many and varied ways we will develop a “Spot Sampler” to describe written words – make a personal hidden language. Using simple stitches, you will design and develop a small work (20x20cms) based on either a metaphor, of your own choosing such as, “The Moon is a Balloon” or a three-line poem, such as, “dry land: storm clouds, a creek runs.” The workshop will suit all levels of experience. A fabric kit will be supplied. The workshop fee is $260 which includes a delicious moring tea. Lunch can be provided for $15 upon request. http://www.gocreatenewengland.com/product/judy-wilford-stitch-as-mark-4-5-november/

Jan Clark: Takeaway Dye Day: Go Create! New England17 Feb 2018
The idea of the workshop is to have fun and build a stash of hand dyed fat quarters. I am not going to do colour theory or dye recipes. Dyes and chemicals will be supplied and all you do is splash around and make unrepeatable happy accidents. We will scrunch dye and fill the containers in the Parfait Method and everyone can take their containers home and then wash them out. Using thickened dye and more fat quarters (prepared with soda ash) we will experiment with painting and stamping. Each participant will receive two prepared fat quarters of cotton for this part of the workshop. The price for the workshop is $110.00 (for the earlybird price, booked one month prior to the workshop) or $130.00 (late booking). The price includes a delicious homemade morning tea. Lunch is available for $15 and must be booked prior to the workshop. http://www.gocreatenewengland.com/product/jan-clark-takeaway-dye-day-18th-feb/

Judy Wilford: Telling Stories - A narrative embroidery: Go Create! New England24 Feb 2018
We all recall memories or impressions, fleeting or substantial, of the natural world: its elements, its wildlife and their habitats or the marks left by man and settlement. The subject of the story is yours to choose. The interpretation of your subject may be realistic, impressionistic or a collage of related images. Bring it to life using the wonderful mediums of fabric, thread and stitch. The Workshop involves the processes of designing, constructing and stitching a ‘low relief’ panel of approx. 25x30cms. The price for the workshop is $220.00 (earlybird price, booked one month prior to the workshop) or $260.00 (late booking). This price includes a delicious homemade morning tea. Lunch is available for $15 per lunch and must be booked prior to the workshop. http://www.gocreatenewengland.com/product/judy-wilford-telling-stories-narrative-embroidery-24-25th-february/
