Kiama Ceramic Art Studio ceramics for artists

Ceramics for Experienced Artists

Expressions of Interest

We are calling for expressions of interest from three experienced 2D artists living in the Kiama region – painters, print-makers, photographers etc – who would like to experiment with artistic expression in clay.

We will be running special one-on-one workshops for each of the selected artists over five half-day sessions.

Pottery teacher Fran Smith says: “I have worked with paint and print artists before, and it was very productive for them and me. Some of the artists used the surface of the ceramic as a kind of canvas, while others looked at the entire vessel – its shape, texture and form – to create interesting integrated art forms”.

The workshops will include all materials, firing and final photography of the finished work and cost $350. The pieces will be exhibited later in the year at the Firestation Gallery, but the finished works will remain the property of the artist to sell or to keep.

We are asking for expressions of interest from artists who would like to participate. Kiama Council’s Community Arts Officer, Louise Croker will be helping Fran to select the three participants.
