Silk-clay with Jen Bowmast

Silk-clay with Jen Bowmast


Past event

Education Centre


Ōtautahi-based artist Jen Bowmast hosts an object-making workshop so you can experience silk clay—an amazingly tactile material—and experiment with the collaborative installation and photography of the work that emerges. Silk clay feels amazing to work with—it is soft but not sticky, air-dries, and is so light! Take your forms home at the end of the session.

Bowmast’s practice involves sculpture, installation, performance and photography and explores the idea that art, both in its making and receiving, is a way to connect with other realms of experience. In her work, encounters with clairvoyants have been catalysts for intuitive making with raw materials such as bronze and clay. This workshop offers exploration into the real and imagined relationships between artist, objects, materials and the space they inhabit.

Children 7+ are welcome to participate with a parent or care-giver.
