Sunday 4 September
10 am–1 pm
This is an opportunity for you and your child to work together on a fun clay project. You will construct a contemporary sculptural form such as those you might see in public art installations. They may be cubic or flat or circular forms – anything goes as long as it is technically strong. Our tutor will be on hand to help you with your design concepts.
The clay will be rolled flat, allowed to stiffen a little, then joined using slurry. Prior to joining, the pieces will be textured and imprinted. This technique enables the glaze to highlight the imprinted design within the piece when fired.
At the end of the workshop you will have made a sculptural piece to add to your home or garden. Artworks completed on the day will need to be dried and fired in the kiln to be collected at a later date.
No experience necessary. For ages 5+.
Note: The venue is four blocks from Parramatta Station. There is free street parking out front on Sundays.
