We'll be meeting at 8.30am at Deus at 344 Bourke Street,Surry Hills. This is a great coffee shop and bicycle repair shop. We'll have some coffee and muffins and then begin our cycle along the Bourke Street cycle way and to our first stop at the Carriage Works at 245 Wilson Street Everleigh.
After a quick bit of history, we'll cyle over to the Sheffer Gallery 38 Landers Street Darlington where we will be seeing a fantastic new exhibition by our intrepid host, Gilbert Grace. This exhibition, LUMINOUS, will be opened especially for us to visit.
From here we cycle through to the White Rabbit Contemporary Chinese Art Collection at 30 Balfour Street Chippendale. The White Rabbit Collection is one of the world’s largest and most significant collections of contemporary Chinese art. Founded by Kerr and Judith Neilson, it focuses on works produced after 2000.
From here we take a leisurely cycle through to Pyrmont, looking at the views and the excellent public artworks along the boardwalk. We'll be stopping to have lunch along the way. Pyrmont has a number of nice cafes and restaurants but some are quite expensive so you might like to bring a sandwich along and enjoy a coffee and cake somewhere local.
From Pyrmont we cycle over to the National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour where we will view some of their exhibitions and hopefully see the products of the Phoenix kites workshop run by professional kite-maker Michael Richards.
We'll then rest for a bit and do a one hour crochet workshop. I'll bring all the materials and hooks along so that you can focus on relaxing and learning or re-learning a great technique. I'll also bring along some new reflective cycle clothing that I've been developing for Xmas. I'd love your feedback on it!
We start at 8.30am and finish at 3.30pm.
The tour and workshop are free and you can register here and you can read more about ARTcycle here!
