Then this class is for you! You will be working alongside other artists, and you will gain the knowledge, sketching techniques and confidence to draw/sketch wherever you choose. What is urban sketching? Urban sketching is about telling stories. Sketching on location, our streets and buildings, cafe’s, and people, catching and recording a moment in time. We will work in a variety of mediums to show the story in monochrome – full colour, drawing out what interests us.
In this workshop you will learn many new skills, such as how to quickly capture the scene by analyzing a view, working out a focal point, sketching and framing a composition.

‘Mummy Sagger’ workshop

This pottery workshop is looking at a unique method of sager firing that I have developed over the past few years.  A sagger is a container that pots, along with combustible materials and substances are placed in and low fired.  Beautiful, natural markings of an unpredictable nature develop on the surface of these non functional pieces.  During the workshop you will look at a range of materials and what patterning each one creates, we will prepare several pots that you have made prior to the workshop and then make a sagger for each one.  This workshop is being run in conjunction with  The Woodblock Kiln Building and Firing workshop.  It is an excellent way to fire your saggers.

Date: Saturday 16th July

Time: 9.30- 3.30

Cost: $30

 Materials:  You will need to have 2 or 3 made and bisque fired pots.  It is best

to use a white clay that has a terrasigilata surface or is burnished

Please look at the Materials Sheet before booking in.
