Play workshop: Headshot kitchen is a workshop led by artist Jordan Davey-Emms in association with Aotearoa Art Fair.

Headshot kitchen will be the first in the Play Workshop series which will be running from March 2023 and exploring playful practice at Chez Derriere.

The workshop takes place on Saturday 4 March 2023 from 1–2pm and bookings are essential, as numbers are limited. Click here to sign up.

Those who book in the workshop are asked to bring something they enjoyed making, or a picture of it, whether that’s an artwork, card, piece of furniture, garden, meal, or anything else. Artist Jordan Davey-Emms will lead participants through a playful process to generate a “professional” headshot for them to take home and use for whatever they like. All materials are provided.

Jordan Davey-Emms is an artist and curator who runs Wormhole in Edgecumbe, Whakatāne. She was a founding member of the Kauae Raro Research Collective (2020 - 2022) and the winner of the 2017 Glaister Ennor Award at Sanderson Contemporary Art. Jordan is interested in play, process, place, ecologies, and belonging. Her writing can be found in Plates Journal, Vernacular, and on Wormhole's website.

Alongside the Play workshop, the artists studios at Parnell Station will be open from 10am - 1pm.
