OUTREACH ACTIVITIES AND ARTWORKS
We enjoy sharing a variety of activities on our Outreach programme-sometimes these are inspired by the llandscape or local culture. Little Blue Penguins are a favourite up in Oamaru whereas in Central Otago old horseshoes have been known to be incorporated into concrete paver mosaics.Recently the groups have experimented with transforming everyday objects with mosaic and paint. ' Lord of the Ring 'goblets were fun to be make and gave lots of scope for some imaginative shapes
Thanks to Gallery De Novo, Amanda Waugh (of Waugh's) and a collection of local designers - funds were raised for us to use to have fun, as a result we hired the Monarch and went for a cruise on Dunedin harbour, members of BiPolar Network and Tapestry Clubhouse joined us on a fabulous day on the sunny Dunedin Harbour. We were treated to the rare opportunity to be surrounded by Buller Albatross at Tairoa Heads. Here are some of photo's from the day.
EARTHWORKS fresh from the kiln
We take an exploratory approach to ceramics at Artsenta. There is the opportunity to learn the basic techniques of building up clay structures whether it be on the potters wheel or using hand techniques such as pinching, coiling, slabwork or working with moulds. We have an electric kiln at Artsenta and an assortment of coloured slips and underglazes for enhancing surface and texture. Combined with the two claybodies available -Abbots red and Abbots white and a small selection of favourite Artsenta glazes - Jade, Blue Heaven and Toffee -apple some exciting results emerge from the kiln . Earthwork classes happen every Wednesday 10.30-12.30. Greta is on hand to help you translate your ideas into clay.
