Pushing the Boundaries with Porcelain Contemporary Clay Masterclass

with Juz Kitson

Saturday 11 May, 2024

10am – 3pm

$200 per person

Explore, experiment, and push the boundaries of porcelain with Juz Kitson. Learn the fundamentals of hand-building and surface decoration to create a unique object. Juz Kitson will offer instructive, practical demonstrations on how to push and pull porcelain by hand, build up forms, and prepare surface treatments with tools while encouraging participants to experiment and draw inspiration from their inner world and the natural surroundings.

The workshop will focus on the familiar and unfamiliar, the internal and external environments, as well as human and animal forms. There will also be several discussions along the way about combining other materials with ceramics and exploring different ways of installing/displaying final works. 

Participants will gain a strong foundation in practical hand-building skills, technical knowledge, and contemporary ceramics practices both nationally and internationally.

At the end of the Masterclass, participants will be able to take home their own unique, hand-built clay sculpture.
