Event description

Description

Saturday 21 Oct, 1.30 – 4.30pm

Create a collective map of your community in Point Cook. Our artist in residence, I-Yen Chen welcomes you to join a mapping ceramic workshop for all ages – especially children!

With the changes in Point Cook’s urban landscape – the workshop will introduce ceramic mapping that will capture memories and dreams, the richness and complexity of the neighbourhood.

Every participant will get a map of Point Cook to reference as participants share their stories of moving to and living in Point Cook. Following a rich conversation, people will be asked to draw from their memory a map of their local community. We will be working with clay – creating textural effects on the clay to reflect our personal maps. What you create will be included in I-Yen Chen’s ceramic installation to be exhibited in February 2018 at Saltwater Community Centre.

What you will learn:

  • Mapping processes and tools
  • Handbuilding ceramic slap
  • Using under glaze and tools to decorate the clay and create effects
  • Participating in the process of creating a collective sculpture with an artist

What you will get:

  • A ceramic clay map
  • Basic skills in handbuilding with clay
  • A pleasurable time hanging out with neighbours and making art with everyone’s kids
