This afternoon workshop making bowls and pinch pots is perfect for summer entertaining or Christmas gifting! If you have you ever wanted to try your hand at making your very own pinch pots or bowls then this workshop is perfect for you.
Come along to Kaz Morton's exclusive workshop and spend a session designing and making your 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 piece from start to finish.
Small groups will ensure that you learn a variety of techniques (in hand building and slip casting) and receive the one on one attention needed from kaz. Your pieces will then be fired and you can come back on December 16th to collect them (or postage can be arranged directly to you). The workshop will be based st 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? 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.
