Excellence in Visual Arts Community Workshops 2017

Excellence in Visual Arts Community Workshops will be part of The Gap State High School October Tula Festival Program

Architectural landscapes: Ceramics Workshop with Simon Jones

Eco Dyeing and Shibori: Textile Workshop with Nancy Brown

This year we would like to offer two workshops, a ceramic workshop and a textile workshop during Tula Festival in October.  The workshops will be run on Saturday 21 October all day with the opportunity to work with ceramic artist, Simon Jones or textile artist, Nancy Brown.  Both workshops will be held at The Gap State High School Visual Art Precinct.

Simon specialises in architectural ceramic sculptural artworks and often his constructions can develop into fantasy building structures or mountain-like, internally-lit dwellings.  This experience allows participants to enhance their creativity and to explore large clay hand building and techniques of architectural construction.

Nancy specialises in textiles and printing and for this workshop participants will learn how to use Indigo and other natural dyes. During this one day course, working with natural indigo will be used to create a range of beautiful tones on silk and cotton fabrics. The shibori folding techniques will be demonstrated and applied and techniques of printing material to create patterns will also be shown.

The full day workshops will run concurrently on Saturday 21 October 2017.
