If understanding how a piece of jewellery or stone-carving is created, then I will be opening my studio on Sunday 9 June for a demo day at Meet The Creators, Low Light festival.
For many artists their production is all in the shed. Small spaces can make creative places and SwellARTS will open our backyard studio in Point Lonsdale, on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula. Meryl’s motivation for her new photography has been spending time capturing the many moods of the Swan Bay wetlands over the last three months. Fiery sunsets have been superb over Autumn, and Swan Bay is a RAMSAR listed wetland protecting the amazing birdlife there. I will be demonstrating some simple silver jewellery techniques, suitable for beginners, including roller embossing to create textured metal, and have some limestone sculptures hanging in the garden too.
Glass fusing, slumping and kiln-forming will be displayed and explained by popular glass artist David Hobday at his garden studio in Point Lonsdale. From marine biologist to glass artist, glass is the perfect medium for David to capture the luminosity and inspiration of our coastal and marine environment.
Camilla Watson repurposes old crockery into mosaic platters, stars and moons. But this is mosaic with a story as she includes many historic shards found in the yards of the heritage town of Queenscliff. She will be at Ms Magnolia florist, in the main Hesse St of Queenscliff.
Tucked away between the park and Queenscliff beach and pier is Queenscliff Neighbourhood House. This idyllic beachside location is the destination to stop and view Lyn Pring’s work in the Shaken not Stirred exhibition and talk to Lyn about her passion for painting on the Sunday.
Low Light is a festival of Winter activities to bring people inside and still welcome them to our coastal towns. Meet the Creators is part of Low Light Queenscliff and is a free event. 10am-4pm on Sunday, 9 June, 2019.
