Between the years 2001 and 2006, Robyn Kinsela was granted a block of time each year as artist-in-residence in the then named Wood Workshop at ANU (Australian National University) in Canberra.

Working with, and encouraged by educational visionary and Head of School, Dr Rodney Hayward, Robyn facilitated various approaches to the idea of design and drawing as extensions in the processes of thinking and problem solving. Through drawing and photography, new ways of seeing and of thinking “outside the square”, were established.

Robyn documented much student work during these years, offering creative presentation solutions.

An exhibition of drawings, paintings, prints and photographs created by Robyn during, and since, this period are on display at Artroomers Artspace, many for the first time since her own exhibition, Through the Door,  held in 2006 at the Foyer Gallery, SofA, ANU.

Howard would take the first year students each year for 3 weeks, in which time they would entirely from scratch, so to speak, make an unique chair without using any electric tools.

It was always amazing to see the looks on the students’ faces when they were initially presented with the felled tree from which they would start building.
