Beginning with an artist talk by renowned artist and ceramicist Gerry Wedd, this one-day hand building workshop is suitable for all skill levels. Learn basic hand-building techniques, including slab building, pinching and coil building. The workshop will also cover slip decoration, sgraffito and drawing on clay.
This exhibition is funded by Australia Council for the Arts.
Gerry Wedd enjoys a national reputation in Australia for his hand-built blue and white ceramics that brim with a dry wit, oscillating from the humorous to darkly disturbing. From his beginnings at the kitchen table, guided by his mother’s hobby-obsession through to formal training at the University of South Australia and his studio tenancy at JamFactory, Wedd draws his craft out of his own inspirations, interest and experiences.
Gerry's exhibition JamFactory Icon Gerry Wedd : Kitschen Man is at Tamworth Regional Gallery until 12 August 2018.
