 Drag Workshop w/ Zac Widders and Hamish McPhie

In this workshop Zac and Hamish will show participants how to apply make up in a demonstration tutorial, as well as talk about what Drag performance means to them. This is a safe space, and opportunity for young people who are interested in drag and/or queer culture to come by for chats and community, or to see how to apply flawless eyeliner! Everyone is welcome.

This workshop is a part of the Winter Blooming Festival 2019 that is taking place at the New England Regional Art Museum. Winter Blooming celebrates Indigenous, multicultural, LGBTIQ arts, culture, communities and allies from across the New England and regional NSW.

Zac Collins-Widders is a proud queer Aboriginal person and has been living in Melbourne for four years. Public servant by day, drag queen by night, they describe their drag aesthetic as ‘the Aboriginal Barbie you never asked for’. Zodiac is the intersectional queen of queens, with interstellar looks. Zac will be sharing his drag style and techniques with those who want to explore their own outrageous style.

Hamish McPhie is a photographer studying Fine Arts at UNSW and is an avid contributor to the LBGTQ+ community in Sydney, working along other artists to create spaces for queer art and identities. With a background in dance and performance, he has expanded his practice into Drag and experiencing the thriving scene that Sydney has to offer.
