What you will learn

Anna will inspire you to let your creativity fly in this course.
She will give you the skills to make the handbuilt projects that are currently only in your head.
Anna is an expert in building fun fantasy creatures by embedding found objects into ceramics.
While sculpture is a focus of this course Anna will help you to make anything you are keen to make, from the functional to the fantastic.
So bring along your wildest ideas, or your most delicate designs and Anna will help you bring them to life.

About the artist

Anna is a ceramic sculptor whose focus lies in the creation of anthropomorphic creatures that blur the boundaries of human, animal and machine. Her contemporary sculptures embody human characteristics, each with their own personality. They are cartoon-like, comical and playful. In 2015 she graduated from the ANU with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Ceramics and in 2016 was awarded a residency with Canberra Potters and started working with us shortly after that.
