About the masterclass
In this masterclass acclaimed ceramic artist Andrew Bryant will share his discoveries in wheel throwing. You’ll gain insight into Andrew’s specialised and unique techniques that result in sculptural work, including his signature spiral forms, faceted towers and animal skulls which are all created on the wheel and assembled thereafter. Students attending this class will be assisted to make their own sculptural ceramic piece on the potter’s wheel. No previous wheel throwing experience is required.
What you'll get:
- Your own original artwork made under the guidance of Andrew
- On request, student work produced at the workshop will be bisque fired at ‘Makers Gallery’
- All equipment and materials supplied
- Tea, coffee and snacks
What to bring:
- An open mind
- And closed in shoes
Andrew Bryant’s ceramic practice deconstructs the wheel thrown functional vessel and reassembles it into an alternate form based on the principles of biomimicry.
Andrew is a well-seasoned teacher of ceramic arts and has a 25 year experience in the ceramic industry. He is an automatic fixture of all ceramic conferences around Australia and has exhibited widely. His workshops are designed to be a fun filled and engaging experience for all ceramic enthusiasts, from beginners to the professional.
