Illustrated lecture: Julie Ewington— Blanche Tilden in five movements
Join independent Sydney writer, curator and broadcaster, Julie Ewington, for an illustrated lecture exploring Melbourne-based jeweller and maker Blanche Tilden’s remarkable and critically acclaimed practice. This 25 year survey of the work of Melbourne-based jeweller and maker Blanche Tilden revealed her remarkable and critically acclaimed practice. Tilden has a unique approach to her materials, in particular, glass, which she explores both as a material for jewellery making and deploys as a metaphor for the connections between making, industry, the wearable object and the body. Her fascination with mechanical devices, fuelled by a desire to understand how things work, continually inspires her work.
