We love a bit of Greenery in the home, so its the ultimate to make your own pot to house it in! Using a variety of techniques that include slip casting and hand coiling you will make at least two planters each. We will chat about the fundamentals of working with clay and the practical nature of designing a piece that you will use in your home.
You will be guided through each step and decorating options by Karen Morton of Kaz ceramics, This workshop is the ultimate in creating your own piece and maybe making a gift for family member or friends also.
Small groups will ensure that you learn a variety of techniques and receive the one on one attention needed from kaz. Your pieces will then be Glaze fired and you can come back on December 16thto collect them ( or postage can be arranged directly to you). The workshop will be based at The Nook Gallery in Mornington and includes all materials, firing and tuition by Kaz
We encouraged to bring items or images that inspire you or that you would like to incorporate into your final piece, don't panic!....we will send you lots of ideas to help you with this! Maybe you already have a project in mind that you would like some expert guidance through? Places are limited for this workshop and your place is guaranteed once full payment has been made. Due to the small class size we do not offer refunds for non attendance. Once booked you will receive a confirmation e-mail along with a list of ideas to help you make the most of your workshop.
No previous experience necessary suitable for all levels.
We hope to see you soon!
Mornington Peninsula artist, Karen Morton is the maker behind ‘Kaz’. This Master of Fine Art graduate in painting and ceramics uses traditional techniques to create both functional and non-functional pieces. Inspired by the simplicity of everyday objects Karen invites us to take a closer look… Unexpected symbols, nostalgic linen and wallpaper patterns feature in her ceramics. In her work she seeks to explore and encapsulate the bewilderment of an undiscovered object or surface.
Karen likens the process of working in porcelain and resin to spending time with close friends, each material has its own personality. Porcelain is such a modest material to work with and the process is quiet organic whilst resin is more controlled. Both processes share a common thread whether opening a kiln door or de-moulding a bangle there is always that element of surprise in seeing the piece for the first time.
