Fluid Art Workshop

Create your own ceramic wall art inspired by coastline

4 hours 1 to 3 (public classes), 1 to 8 (private) label $140 - $160 ($160 per person when you book for 1 student, $150 pp for 2 students, $140 for 3+ students)

Join me at my workshop on Northern beaches of Sydney as I take you on a voyage of discovery to interpret your microcosmic world inspired by the coastline. To begin you will learn about glass and ceramics painting in general and materials and techniques which can be used to achieve various results.

Then using your own images or images that I will provide of microscopic marine organisms and repeating patterns you will be guided to reinterpret these configurations onto ceramic plate or ceramic tile 20x20 cm.

In this 4 hours workshop I will demonstrate unique pattern techniques, as well as mixing different mediums and help you to make an exciting and unique artwork you'll be proud to hang on your wall!

Classes are VERY small, up to 3 people, almost private :) So no doubt I will be able to assist every participant.

Please note that listed time for this workshop is very flexible. You can request ANY other day and I will do my best to make it available.

Your finished work will need 24 hours to dry, so you can pick it up later or take it with you the same day, just making sure that it's flat while you are traveling home.

At lunch time we will have a tea/coffee break with some nibbles.

Stunning stained glass and ceramic painting

4.9 (10)

I am a ceramic and glass artist who originally hails from Russia but 2 years ago moved to Australia and now based in Northern Beaches of Sydney. I graduated from art school in my youth, but applied myself to the field of economics before returning to my roots with a course in Interior Decoration in the International Design School in Moscow in 2014 after 10 years of auditing.

To quit my job was a big desicion but now I can say - the best in my life. My family used to say that hobby can't be your full time job, but I disagreed.

I specialise in glass and ceramic painting, having started the former in 2013 in Moscow. I learned glass and ceramic painting by myself, step by step, year by year. And still learning: learning new techniques, new materials, new surfaces...

Constantly developing my work, I am currently in a period of transition and evolving from my previous style. I found contemporary art interesting to me and decided to use my mediums to create some pieces of art in another way.

If you are the one who loves stained glass painting, painted ceramic tiles or plates, fluid art...if you want to learn how to do it yoursellf, you are more than welcome to my workshops! I will tell you everything that I know.
