Handbuilding with Clay 4-week Course

Create your own hand built clay forms inspired by nature as you slow down, reconnect and recharge!

Join us for a four-week course beginning the 29th of October 2020, on Thursday’s 10:00 am – 12.30pm.

The classes will be run over four weeks in the bushland scenery at Eramboo Artist Environment on the edge of Ku-ring-gai National Park!

Be guided by local artist Eleanor Amiradaki in creating a series of beautiful Clay Small Vessels inspired by the natural forms found in nature (perfect for Christmas gifts!)

Eleanor is Sydney based artist whose practice encompasses installation, printmaking, drawing and photography.

Influenced by archetypal psychology and the rituals of the everyday she explores the intimate interior landscapes and

thresholds we reside in, and move between. Inspired by the interplay of the natural world and the creative gesture, she

enjoys sharing elements of her practice with others and facilitates a range of classes and workshops.

Eleanor holds an honours degree in Visual Communications and Master of Art at UNSW Art & Design. She is a recent
