We are delighted to announce that Internationally renowned Ceramic Artist, Penny Byrne, will be coming to Tasmania to lead a two day workshop on ceramics restoration and conservation in July.
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of which glues, fillers and paints to use and how to approach ceramic restoration. Penny will provide a ceramic tile or small bowl for participants to break and then re-stick, and explain materials for filling chips, repainting etcetera. Participants are also encouraged to bring along broken ceramics to mend.
Penny was a keynote speaker at the Adelaide Triennale and teaches courses at the Slow Clay Centre in Melbourne. She has worked as a ceramics conservator and restorer; and exhibited nationally and internationally. Find out more about Penny’s life and work at http://pennybyrneartist.com/
