Lino Printing - Beyond Black and White (Printing-making course)  code:AC16 Open
Wednesday 7-Mar-2018 1:00pm (5 weeks)
membership required
Lino Printing – Beyond Black and White” will be an intermediate level course that will introduce students to the process of multi-coloured lino printing. This course would still be suitable for beginners (esp. those who like a challenge) as we will begin the course by doing a single colour lino print design to make sure we can all wrap our heads around how the process works. However, the main focus will be to produce a final collection of prints with 3 or more colour separations, using the degenerative process of removing more and more lino from your block with each layer until the block is eventually destroyed by the end of the process – meaning your prints will be exclusive, limited edition pieces. During the course we will look at examples of this process used by artists who have mastered the craft, and investigate the variations in materials & equipment, as well as looking at alternate methods that can be used to incorporate layers of colour into your lino printed artworks.


Students will need to bring some inspiration and/ or pre-developed ideas & sketches from which they will create their designs, and a portfolio or box to keep their prints in. If students are working on pieces at home and would like to incorporate these into their work or receive feedback/ direction they are welcome to bring these along also.
Students who have their own carving tools (and are happy to use them) should notify the SPLC coordinator. All other tools/ materials will be provided.

Muslims in Australia - Inclusion and Exclusion  code:T6 Open
Friday 9-Mar-2018 12:30pm
With their number totaling more than half a million, Muslims are often identified as 'outsiders'. This is despite the fact that Muslim presence in Australia predates European arrival. But their number has gradually increasing since the mid-19th century. The talk would assess their experiences of inclusion and exclusion in Australia against the slowly growing Islamophobia. It would show that the picture is mixed in terms of how Muslims are engaged by the non-Muslim communities in Australia, and that Muslims themselves react and interact with the wider community in different ways. To view and portray Muslims as a community, therefore, is to miss out on the diversity inherent in Muslim communities living around the world.

O'connor Pipeline  code:T7 Open
Friday 2-Mar-2018 12:30pm
Bill was born on the pipeline, at No 7 Pumping Station, Gilgai, and lived his early life and schooling as a pipeline kid. His father worked his entire life on three of the O’Connor built steam pumping stations, firstly as a fireman, and later as a greaser.
Bill became a 42 year career banker, serving at city and country branches, and later in offshore postings in Fiji, Hong Kong, Singapore, and London.

He retired in 2002, and amongst other things, became a volunteer tour guide with the National Trust, specifically looking after the Trust’s steam powered No 1 Pumping station at Mundaring Weir.

Bill now lives in South Perth, but his passion is the history and achievements of engineer CY O’Connor, and he uses almost any excuse to head for the hills and Mundaring Weir.

Bill also has a strong interest in Australian colonial history, being a direct descendent of two First Fleet convicts who arrived at Sydney Cove with Captain Arthur Phillip in January 1788. His direct lineage goes back to five convicts.

Tai Chi for Beginners  code:HW9 Full
Tuesday 13-Feb-2018 4:00pm (8 weeks)
membership required
Tai Chi Kung Fu is a complete system of Chinese martial art developed from Taoist philosophies. Its development was based on sound scientific principles. Its gentle flow and graceful movements are now recognized also as a very good form of exercise. With constant practice, it can promote good health and relaxation. However, for maximum benefit and to avoid possible injury, proper instruction is essential.

The principles of Tai Chi are closely related to Chi Kung. “Chi” is the Chinese word for Internal Life Energy. While Chi Kung promotes the flow of life energy through deep breathing and meditation, Tai Chi does the same through slow gentle movements. After practising Tai Chi diligently and correctly for some time, students will be able to develop deeper breathing and begin to experience the benefits associated with the smooth gentle flow of Chi within their bodies.

The original form of Tai Chi was first developed in China hundreds of years ago by Master Chan. Since then, various styles had emerged, each with some variations and differing characteristics. In Australia, the most popular ones are the Yang and the Wu styles. The Tai Chi form using free hands consists of 108 movements. However, there are also other forms of Tai Chi using weapons such as sword, knife and fan etc.

Curtin Stadium is currently running Tai Chi classes for both beginners and advanced students on Tuesday mornings at 7.10 a.m. The instructor is Stephen Ho who is a retired academic and he has been a Tai Chi practitioner with over 40 years experience. For further information, please see the Reception Desk at Curtin Stadium.
