Ceramic Planter Workshop
12.30 to 3.30pm, Sunday, 20 March 2022
An introductory hand-building workshop, ideal for those curious about creating with clay. Working with your hands and minimal tools, ceramics artist Sachiko Mardon will guide you through the process of making a small planter to hold your favourite succulents or potted friends. Hand-building offers the opportunity to create organic shapes and sculptural forms, while the surface of the planter is the ideal vehicle to add texture with your own stamps or found objects.
This program includes clay and bisque firing.
Coffee with Noguchi
12.30 to 3.30pm, Sunday, 3 April 2022
Imagine a coffee set (cup and plate) inspired by Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988)—or your favourite sculptor—then explore techniques to sculpt it from clay. Hand-building techniques such as pinching, coiling or slab-building will be used to create your functional sculpture. The ultimate coffee table installation.
This program includes Raku clay, slip decoration and bisque firing.
Ikebana Vessel in Clay
12.30 to 3.30pm, Sunday, 8 May 2022
Artfully arrange collected florals in your own ikebana vessel, hand-built in clay. Your vessel may be organic, understated or geometric in form to complement your arrangement. Consider how the arrangement will be supported and how to incorporate this into your design. No experience in ikebana or ceramics necessary, just bring your imagination.
This program includes paperclay and bisque firing.
12 to 1.30pm, Sunday, 19 June 2022 | Workshop 1 $30
12 to 1.30pm, Sunday, 19 June 2022 | Workshop 2 $30
All items will be bisque fired after each workshop, which means they are ready to be glazed and fired a second time. Glaze is applied by dipping or brushing and can give your piece a shiny/matte or clear/coloured finish when fired this second time. Depending on the type of clay used, participants works will be fired between 1100-1200 degrees Celsius.
During the workshop participants will learn to glaze their ceramic objects and gain an understanding of firing processes.
This workshop includes glaze and the second firing.
