Carole Epp Workshop: Narrative & Controversy 7 May 2016

That's right folks, you read it right...I'm heading back to my home away from home Australia this May. I can barely wait to visit old friends, make new ones, see and experience the amazing Australian Ceramics scene again! Join me for a one day workshop in Sydney!

Narrative & Controversy

A one-day workshop 
with Carole Epp
Saturday 7 May 2016, 10am – 4pm
Square 1 Studios

32 Bowden St Alexandria NSW 2015
Cost: $85 per person ($75 TACA members)

Carole is a Canadian ceramic artist living and working in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She received her Masters Degree in Ceramics from the Australian National University in 2005 and has maintained a full time studio practice since. Her ceramics branch off into two distinct bodies of work – sculptural and functional.

Outline: Come and join Carole for a raucous day of story telling about her ceramics. She’ll divulge her handbuilding and throwing secrets and discuss her glazed surface treatments. Demonstrations about how she brings narrative into functional and sculptural work – from politics and social commentary, to humour and whimsy – will be discussed. Participants will learn how to combine narrative concerns alongside design and aesthetic concerns in their work. There will be lots of demos and also some chat about social media. 
You may already know Carole from her famous blog:
