At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Cardboard Carpentry

Cardboard Carpentry
Join our Hatched Artist in Resident Sacha Barker on a journey of creating with cardboard!
Cardboard carpentry is a term coined to describe the crafting of cardboard as if it were wood. This hands-on building workshop is perfect for young artists and inventors who want to become apprentice cardboard carpenters!
On display at this workshop you will also discover the ThingShip, a pre-made design from artist Sacha Baker! The ThingShip has many cardboard compartments and a few secret treasures inside. Participants are invited to bring a small handheld object (small enough to be hidden inside a closed fist) to exchange with an object already in the ThingShip!
A perfect activity for the school holidays. Participants must be 12+ or supervised by a parent or guardian.
