We want to share the joy of working with Porcelain with you! If you have you ever wanted to try your hand at making your very own piece of jewellery from scratch? Then this is an occasion not to be missed!
Come along to Kaz Morton's exclusive workshop and spend two mornings designing and making your very own exclusive pieces and gifts to take home and treasure. You will be guided through each step by Karen Morton of Kaz ceramics, where you will design your very own pieces from start to finish.
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 fired and you can come back on the 18th November to finish them off with colours and glazes adding the findings . The workshop will be held at The Nook Gallery and Studios 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? Or maybe you would like to make some personalized Chriatmas gifts? Places are limited for this workshop and your place is guarenteed 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.
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.
