Botanics in Relief Workshop (24 May 2020)
Botanics in Relief Workshop with Jane du Rand: 9–5pm Sunday 24 May.
A “relief” in art is a 3-dimensional sculpture that sits against a solid base or backing, as if rising from formlessness into form. Reliefs made from clay form an essential part of Jane du Rand’s ceramic and mosaic art, allowing her to combine ceramics and mosaics in unique ways that provide scale and life to her work. Jane’s botanical reliefs are in demand from art collectors around the world.
In this special one-day workshop, you will learn from Jane du Rand to design and create a detailed botanical relief using clay. You will make a special ceramic vessel as the base for your relief, and will have the choice to make leaves, flowers, or seeds with your own selection of decorative finishes and colours. Finished pieces will be glazed and kiln-fired, and can be used as wall art inside or outside the home.
All materials and equipment for the workshop, including clay and glazes to make your relief will be provided. Participants outside of Brisbane are encouraged to attend: classes will be run by webinar for those who are unable to attend in person, either as a result of COVID19 restrictions or remote locations, with workshop materials supplied for collection, local or postal delivery (select your delivery option at checkout when registering).
This workshop is targeted for adults, but is also suitable for teenagers or tweens when accompanying an adult or older sibling. All levels of experience welcome.
