Video: How an old school inspired one of Up Here's Power Up projects

Architect Tammy Gaber experiments with block printing and primary colours to create new art outside old Wembley Public School

During the pandemic, Tammy Gaber took the time to teach herself how to do block printing. 

Although she had only practiced the technique on the pages of her sketch book, the associate professor from the McEwen School of Architecture was excited to apply it to a larger scale.

So when she was invited to take part in the Power Up project as part of this year's Up Here urban art and music festival, Gaber jumped right in!

Watch the video to see her artwork take shape and learn how a few architecture features of the old Wembley Public School inspired the design.
