Hemp Papermaking Workshop


Hemp was once the most valuable and widely used feedstock for fibre, food and construction. It was outlawed in the US in the 20th Century as part of a strategy for commercial domination by chemical, steel and oil magnates.

As the dangers of fossil fuels, mining and deforestation become increasingly apparent, hemp is making a resurgence globally as a natural, green alternative. Papermaking is the touchstone of this return.

The workshop will involve: a short and intriguing video covering the history and process of papermaking; hands-on instruction.

Workshop will be led by Gilbert Grace MFA and is supported by The Green Living Centre and Inner West Council.

Where: Whites Creek Cottage, 31 White Street, Lilyfield.
When: 1.30 - 4.00 pm, Saturday 21 September.
Cost: Free, limit of 12 (Inner West residents have preference), book via Eventbrite, https://bit.ly/2MOz3jA.
Bring: Casual clothes.
TAG: Map https://bit.ly/2ZE1ra3

ARTcycle Inc., your friendly, art-focused, recreational bicycle club, is funded through a variety of means and one is membership.

Membership helps to pay for things like this website and the Meetup site so we can keep you all well informed of our goings on and events.

We reckon that if you have come to three of our rides or events that that is endorsement enough and that you could take the next step and become paid up members.

It's only $1 to join and $20 annual subscription, small beers really for what we provide.

Jump onto the membership page for details for how to become a member. And for all current members please help us keep the wheels rolling by getting your subscriptions up to date.

'Against Hollywood' 6 - 22 September 2019


Opening Friday 6 September 2019 6-8 pm

A bit of shameless self promotion for my lifelong occupation as an artist. Most of the rides I have curated have been the result of searching out picaresque urban views for painting. It was and is natural to want to share those visions of unexpected beauty with others, either as paintings or prints, or in the form of cycle tours. I hope you can join me for the opening, or visit Art Est at a time that suits.

Where: Unit 4, 67 - 69 Lords Rd Leichhardt, NSW.
When: 6 - 22 September 2019, M - F 9.30 am - 5 pm, Sat 2 - 5 pm.
Access: situated between Taverners Hill and Marion Stations on the light rail. Close to bus and heavy rail. Or you can bicycle in - its just off the GreenWay through the Lords Rd tunnel.
