WITH MELINDA YOUNG
This workshop will explore and challenge approaches to making, focusing on the theme ‘Unnatural Jewellery’. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with and deconstruct a variety of found materials whilst developing and working to a theme.
This workshop aims to encourage participants to:
- Challenge their ‘natural’ and collaborative approaches to making.
- Experience new approaches to working with experimental materials and colours.
- Consider and develop a conceptual approach to materials to guide the making process.
- Develop a collection of experimental pieces of jewellery using deconstructed materials and new techniques, which are then developed into a small body of finished work.
Level: All Levels. This workshop is suitable for beginners through to experienced artists.
Estimated materials cost $35 – $100
PRINTING ON CLAY: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
WITH CLARISSA REGAN
Do you have a photograph you would like to transfer onto a ceramic artwork? Would you like to learn how to make your own Japanese-style tissue paper transfer? This workshop is a great opportunity to learn new image-making techniques designed for artists working with clay.
During this hands-on workshop participants will learn how to make their own silk-screens, transfer photographs and drawings onto raw clay and bisque ware, make laser toner decals, Japanese tissue paper and photocopier transfers, and mix their own inexpensive printing inks.
All the techniques demonstrated in this workshop are easily transferrable to participants’ own studio or home. During the workshop, participants will hand build simple forms which will be bisque fired during the course.
Level: All levels. This course is suitable for beginners to more experienced ceramic artists wishing to extend their range. Estimated materials cost: $150
