Lose yourself for three hours working with your hands and unleash those creative skills to unwind with Sunday Sculpting. 

Each month you will have the opportunity to try your hand at crafting something different. Beginning with moulding clay and moving into manipulating other materials such as wire for functional and/or aesthetic purposes, each Sunday Sculpting will provide an exciting opportunity to try something new and create something unique. 

No experience is necessary, though eager participants are able to work on the same project each month if they have a larger ambition in mind.

All materials and tools are provided. Unless you desire to keep your ceramic piece unfired, the facilitator will stain and fire your clay vessel with a manganese oxide in an electric kiln to highlight and preserve the textures you have created.

You will be able to collect your ceramic piece fully completed at a later date.

About the Artist Educator

Amelia Ogg is a local artist and artist educator known mostly for her ceramic sculptural work. While she majored in painting during her Bachelor of visual art, her recent practice is founded on an interest in the intuitive and tactile process of clay building. For Amelia, ceramics is a consistent connection to the creative process. It has gently, over time, compelled her to relinquish rigid control and expectations of desired designs. Discovering unique and unpredictable outcomes in ceramic pieces now continues to inspire her work. Amelia’s experimental approach of uncovering the possibilities and limitations of clay motivates her need to explore new materials, tools and techniques. The direction this has provided, paired with the primordial significance of clay as medium has been the catalyst for the development of both decorative and functional sculptures and vessels that either house plants and ecosystems or communicate concepts within the cycle of life and decay.
