WildBlak Clay Pots

with Cassie Leatham


 
Day 1 Session

Suitable for: ALL LEVELS

 
 


About the Workshop

In this hands-on workshop session, participants will be engaged in a First Nations Art experience, using natural earthen clays and creating a significant pot. Learn the symbols and fine lines carved into the clay pots which are then painted with natural ochre paints and create a natural paint brush using a feather.

This workshop will connect to histories and develop an understanding that it’s ‘not just dots’. Being a Victorian Aboriginal Artist, we tell our stories using traditional symbols and fine lines.

We’ll also explore the natural material resource of clay, giving connection to earth and the creation stories Cassie will be telling while facilitating this journey of creative arts.
