About the Maker: Kirandeep Grewal is a multi-disciplinary community artist and an art educator based in Canberra. Her art practice is based upon a meditative approach to everyday life. Her designs on silk scarves, wall hangings or paintings are a combination of various traditional techniques, including Shibori, Indian tie-and-dye, freehand drawing/painting, and embroidery.
Facilitating and engaging the community in arts through various community projects are the core of her art practice. Currently, she runs Maker’s Workshop (personal and home well-being project) in collaboration with Multicultural Hub Canberra.
In October 2022, she had the privilege to be running art workshops for children and their parents who had recently arrived in Australia from different parts of the world. These workshops are supported by Vinnies, the Red Cross, the Multicultural Hub, and the ACT Library. She was invited by Geoff Filmer for Live painting for the 2022 Australian of the Year Lunch at the National Gallery of Australia. She has exhibited nationally (in Canberra, Hobart, Launceston, Esperance, and Perth) and internationally. She is the founder and facilitator for Migrant Women’s Art Group since 2020. An initiative is supported by Gungahlin Arts.
In 2015 she was a facilitator for Artist by the River Projects 7 and 8 in Perth. She was recognised by the Rotary Club of Swan Valley, Western Australia for her dedication to the project.
