Elemental Brisbane

Elemental Brisbane celebrates the amazing works artists create using elements from the waste stream, PAPER, METAL, WOOD AND FIBER as the raw materials for their art.

You're invited to the FREE OPENING NIGHT EXHIBITION full of inspiring and innovative Brisbane art and crafts, live music from the Jesse Morris Band, a re-fashion parade, late-night shopping in the Woolloongabba Warehouse, food from Mu'ooz Eritrean and a cash bar and celebrations. (PLEASE NOTE the warehouse will close at 3pm on Oct 15 in preparation for the opening).

Celebrating everyday materials in the raw - timber, fibre, metal, paper - and what they can become.

Seize that creative energy and book into one our Elemental Brisbane Master-classes. We have four to choose from, each focusing on a particular element (paper, metal, ceramic, textile) and facilitated by a talented local craftsperson.
