Would you like to expand your knowledge of ceramics and see innovative approaches by established artists? Our Guest Artist Workshops are carefully designed to offer you a unique experience. Generally a one-off event, the invited artists are chosen for their innovative expression, their integrity and their experience as presenters. They are often interstate or international artists who have not previously presented in Melbourne so these workshops are genuinely unique.
Join respected artist Sandy Lockwood for this special one-day workshop where she will demonstrate many unique ways of expressing and exaggerating the plastic, fluid qualities of clay. The material qualities of clay are essential to Sandy’s work as they provide a vocabulary for expressing a language of rich textures, rhythms and tactile sensation.
In this workshop Sandy will focus on demonstrating some fluid ways of working with clay that exaggerate and preserve these qualities together with the movement of the potter’s wheel and rhythm of the hands.
Demonstrations will include the making of a variety of objects from large and small wheel-thrown forms to manipulated and altered bowls, plates and cups for everyday use. A visual presentation showing the underlying threads of Sandy’s development will punctuate the day.
All welcome, including non-ceramists and complete beginners, for this inspiring demonstration workshop!
Sandy is looking forward to a lively exchange about making, firing and living a life around clay and pots.
