Location: The Nook Gallery, 18 Progress St Mornington
We all have a special phrase, story or recipe between family members or friends, so we thought it would be a great workshop to be able to capture those words into your very own piece or pieces.
This is a first for this workshop and we hope it will inspire you to create a beautiful heirloom, gift or a special piece to remember for yourself. You can choose what you would like your text on (bowl, cup, dish or platter) it will be premade to the leather hard stage for you and on the day all you have to do is add your very own text using a variety of techniques which will be demonstrated to you at the start of the session.
No experience necessary and Kaz and staff will be there to help you through the whole session. Pieces will be fired and ready to be collected on November 19th at The Nook Gallery in Mornington (or we can arrange to have them sent to you if you cant make it).
So go on, grab a friend that you have been meaning to catch up with and join us for a fun afternoon of creative making. All tools and firing is included.
No previous experience necessary.
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.
