Artists and Crafters wanted to make thousands upon thousands of hand cast porcelain Geranium Leaves. No prior skills necessary, we will teach you the rest!
The Crumbling Ecologies Project will use thousands of hand cast porcelain geranium leaves to create a large installation in Gallery 1 at Craft Victoria, April 2012.
As a volunteering artist, what's in it for me?
-All artists involved in making the work will be credited in the exhibition at Craft Victoria.
-The fabrication of the work will be photographically documented form an artist zine to accompany the exhibition.
-You will learn a new skill to add to your arsenal: how to hand cast organic material into porcelain.
-The opportunity to become a part of the Creative Network: an independent group of artists and crafters that will share their skills with one another and collaborate on future art projects.
How much time will this take?
-You can come for an hour, you can come for a day, you can stay for the week- its totally up to you.
What will be done with the Geranium Leaves I make?
-The Crumbling Ecologies Project will use thousands of hand cast porcelain geranium leaves that on closer inspection appear on the brink of crumbling, embodying the story of their makers to create a large installation in Gallery 1 at Craft Victoria, April 2012.
-The leaves will be free for audience members visiting the gallery to take some if they wish. It is the aim of the project that through this interactive quality of the work we will be able to give back to the community, reach out to our audience and stimulate a dialogue on the role of the hand made in our everyday lives.
Does it cost anything?
Do I need to bring anything?
-Yourself, an apron, some food and drink.
Where will the making take place?
-in a studio in Caulfield, Victoria (about 20mins from Melbourne CBD)
