Make a Pit-Fired Clay Figurine – Short Course
October 10, 2015 @ 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM$80.00
Delve your hands into gooey clay and create a figurine using all the elements: earth, water, fire, and air. Guided by facilitator and sculptor Carolyn Warren-Langford, connect with techniques that have been used for thousands of years across history and cultures. You will make your own piece of art, inspired by creativity, connection and conversation.
The workshop will take place in two sessions as your sculptures need to dry and be fired in a kiln. Then it will be time to gather around as the pit fire flames create the flashes of smoky colours on your sculptures, becoming strengthened and transformed forever.
Inspired by Carolyn’s own ‘fat bottomed wild women’, in this workshop, you can create your own wonderful clay figurine.
A two part course over two dates: Sat 10th Oct (11-3pm) & Sat 31st Oct (4-8:30pm)
This course is part of the Activate Program – a new arts and culture program curated by Wyndham City Council.
