Just in time for Christmas and In conjunction with our VIP studio shopping event we will be holding a painting workshop where the the kids (and adults!) can paint their own pre made ceramics. A Mug for their class teacher, a plate for grandma, a water dish for the family pet or a baby hand print for dad?
Bookings are essential as places are limited. The cost of sitting to paint includes one ceramic piece (mug/plate/bowl/trinket box, drink coaster,picture frame) additional pieces can be purchased on the day. The painting session will be supervised and help will be on hand with colour choices and painting techniques, stencils and stickers.
No experience necessary, its easy peasey! All of the paints and glazes are non toxic and once the pieces have been fired they are safe to be used for food.
Your amazing creations can be picked up from the Nook gallery on Saturday December 16th from 9am until 3pm.
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.
