Service Description

'Field Trip' is based on the idea that we can have a shared experience in nature that inspires us and nourishes our creative spirit. How can this environment inspire us? What can we learn about our own creative process through dialogue and sharing? This unique sculptural course is designed to involve you in every aspect of the creative process, allowing room for inspiration, exploration, dialogue, play and reflection. Artist Hilary Green would like to share one of her favourite beaches with you to invite rich dialogue and questions that add layers of meaning to your work as well as a new artistic perspective and appreciation of the natural world. Hilary will guide you to investigate the site, explore all the senses, invite drawing and reflection prompts as well as photography to collect your research inspiration. In the following weeks we will use this experience to hand build a sculptural form and explore glazing techniques. This is a self directed studio time model where Hilary will mentor you in every step of the process. Most importantly we will celebrate, reflect and learn with each other in the final session. Certain sessions are compulsory but multiple studio times are offered for you to choose. All materials and firing included.
