Be more than a Social Media Liker.
Almost every day over the last twenty years the Nyoongar Patrol (Nyoongar Outreach Service) drive past our studio, helping the at risk young, homeless and generally keeping Aboriginal people safe and out of the criminal system. It was set up after the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (1987–1991).
With my encouragement over a year ago they setup a gofundme fundraising account where we can make regular contributions. Do make even a small donation.
After three years of touring US Art Museums, my work in the Particle & Wave: Paper Clay exhibition curated by Peter Held, is now at The Fuller Craft Museum, in Brockton, MA, USA, will finally close on May 30.
2021 Studio Classes*
After the usual Summer break and a few short Lockdowns, my small studio based classes (est. 1998) have resumed again. Immediate gift vouchers: 1 lesson, 2 lesson or immediate gift voucher or enrol here.
Pottery, sculpture and paper clay workshops
I also provide popular hands on fun information packed one day workshops. They're small, relaxed and creative day, information packed but predominately hands on fun. I've done dozens of these in a dozen countries! When the current covid restrictions ease the next will be posted with online enrol here.
Over the last month I've provided one for the 60 year old Perth Studio Potters (my third there in 20 years), an introduction to pottery workshop for Fiona and Jason's Shape of u group, plus a series of mornings seasons for Ellenbrook Arts Centre and the new migrant Sister Project social enterprise.
2020 Studio Newsletter
What's already happening? The 2020 Robertson Park studio artists annual newsletter is up here.
The Westcoast Community Centre visited the studio in February for a morning of artist talks and art discussions. So many creatives!
I have been invited to give a workshop in Broome and possiably an AIR later in the year (subject to funding application). Go here to see the latest list, dates, or request to be updated by organisers.
As part of my ongoing PhD research at Curtin University I gave a well received paper: "Social network analysis and visualisation tools within a ceramic art studio" at the 5th National SNA Conference, late last year.
I continue to research and write on the patterns of human interaction and connection, create work inspired by this. There is a little time for other related projects.
The latest studio 1 page e-newsletter is here.
