Interstate Artist Graham Hay will deliver a hands on, fun, information packed paper clay workshop for both the novice and experienced. Short demonstrations and then hands on practice may include modifying/making your own paper clay, mastering wet on dry, dry to dry joining, metal and ceramic reinforcements, speed and turbo casting, single glaze firing and the emerging non-fired trend, hygiene in the studio and classroom, shortcuts and studio setup, the emerging aesthetics and why paper clay is now third of all clay used in WA studios and classrooms.

 
ARTIST BIO
 “I immensely enjoy sharing studio discoveries and techniques, particularly when I see the eyes light up of both novice and experienced paper clay users, when they realise the creative potential for their own work”
 
Over the last two and a half decades Graham Hay has focused on ceramic paper clay sculpture, continuously pioneered and sharing new techniques, including leading the first international conferences and symposiums in Hungary (2004), Norway (2007) and the US (2009, 2010, 2015).   He has participated in over 160 exhibitions and his work is in textbooks and public collections in a dozen countries.  This included biennales in Australia, Holland, Argentina, Romania and Italy (3), including a 500 kg vessel based sculpture in a 2017 Venice Biennale event. Generous by nature, he has written over 20 journal articles, given over 300 workshops and provides a huge, information packed website. Visit www.grahamhay.com.au and be inspired.
