    In this 1-day school holiday workshop, kids will make a ceramic plate and cup that they’ll be able to use every day. We’ll be looking at the creative and fun plates by French illustrator Jean Jullien, with emotions like happy, sad and unimpressed for inspiration.

    An experienced artist and tutor will teach the kids skills in making and joining clay slabs and hand-building techniques to build their plates and cups. They’ll use the inlay technique with stained clay in different colours to create their own character expressions.

    In celebration of Earth Day, kids will also learn about sustainability and the benefits of using their own plates and cups instead of single-use plastic.

    The plate and cups will be glazed and fired ready to be collected approximately 4 weeks after the workshop.

    Class size: maximum 10.

    Learn about stencil art while looking at local and international street artists for inspiration in this full day workshop. You will create a poster in the style of Australian street art legends Vexta and Rone1 and look at how this global phenomenon has taken the world by storm. Use a photo of yourself as the basis to create an awesome street art inspired poster.

    You will use basic Photo editing skills to create your stencil design, then hand cut your stencil and screen print it onto box board. Street art is often political and your poster need not be any different – you can add your own positive political message to your work to take it to the next level.

    No prior experience is necessary.
