Tutor: Sophie Haythornthwaite
This will be a series of workshops concentrating on the specific techniques utilised by different artists to create their signature look and feel. What makes a Vermeer a Vermeer, or a Rembrandt a Rembrandt? We will find out, and learn to apply these techniques to our own work. Vermeer is one of the most beloved painters of all time, and very much a ‘painters painter’. His masterly and subtle use of colour and composition is unique. The quietness and contemplative air of his interiors create little oases of peace and tranquility within the picture frame. We will discuss how Vermeer created his compositions, including his use of devices such as the camera obscura and camera lucida. We will also cover Vermeer’s technique of layering complementary and contrasting colours to create the beautiful glowing vibrancy of his hues and his use of different paint textures and brushwork to create different surface effects. Also coming soon in this series of workshops are: Secrets of the Pre Raphaelites, Secrets of Rembrandt, Secrets of Leonardo, Secrets of Van Eyck and the Flemish Masters, Secrets of Caravaggio. Level: Suitable for all levels
Precision Jewellery Workshop - Deposit
Date: Sat 16th and Sun 17th Feb 2019
Total Fee: $390 inc materials and GST
Tutor: Margo Anton
Learn how to create high end, precisely laid mosaic jewellery in this two day workshop. The first day begins with a comprehensive lecture and slide show on jewellery base selection, adhesive choice, and suitable tesserae, followed by a examination of design for jewellery and how it differs from standard mosaic design. Precision cutting, the key to fine mosaic jewellery, will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced. Jewellery laying techniques will be thoroughly covered, and students can expect lots of great tips! Class participants will receive lots of individual attention as they work on silver plate mosaic pendants using mosaic gold, smalti, filati, semiprecious stones, dichroic glass, and millefiori. On the second day, participants will hone their newfound skills in precision mosaic making while working on a more challenging second or even third project. A comprehensive handout will be provided, and participants should expect to depart with the knowledge and skills to create precision mosaic jewellery on their own. This workshop should particularly benefit participants of all levels who are wanting to learn to cut material more precisely, who want to add high end mosaic jewellery to their repertoire, or who are interested in learning to work in small scale mosaic.
