Jae Kang’s Hula Hoop Making Workshops

Jae Kang’s Hula Hoop Workshops

11am - 2pm Saturday 17 February 2018

Join artist Jae Kang in her drop-in hula hoop making workshops, inspired by her temporary exhibition Knot Touch, here at the Maritime Museum.

Using recycled irrigation pipes from Jae’s own green house, everyone learns how to make their own hula hoop to take home.

The Knot Touch is an exhibition with installations that invite visitors to touch and play, designed to engage a range of visitors including young, older and those with disabilities. Often galleries and museums are off-limits to visitors as far as touching art and objects, but in this exhibition the restriction is lifted. Using netting, rope and a range of maritime knots, Kang has created a spatial installation for the Maritime Museum that delivers a tactile experience that stimulates the imagination and invites interaction.

Free to attend, bookings not required.
