Arts Muster school of arts and crafts in NSW, Australia
Arts Muster is a new school of arts and crafts for adults. Our first workshops are 5-7 October 2019, including ceramics, screen printing, book binding, felting, art quilts, plant dyeing, hand embroidery, spoon whittling, sustainable fashion and small 3D collage. In this podcast, Arts Muster organiser Samantha Tannous interviews the tutors coming up in October, to find out more about their personal art practice, what inspires them, and what students can expect in their workshops.
Anyone can make an artist's book!
Claire Brach teaches simple yet elegant techniques for combining papers, boards, and ephemera into bound art.
She encourages her students to bring maps, papers collected on holidays, lightweight fabrics, magazine images, in fact almost anything to incorporate into their books. Claire is providing threads, boards, a range of papers and other elements for her students to use and share.
Listen to Claire describing what you can expect in her 3-day workshop at Arts Muster this October, 2019.
Arts Muster is thrilled that ceramic artist John Hattom is joining us in October.
Over three full days, John's students will make an array of beautiful, mindful and functional ceramic objects.
Listen to John describing how he incorporates a Japanese aesthetic into his work, and his approach to teaching ceramics to anyone who wants to give it a try.
John's studio Ghatikara is at 5 Noble Street Bullaburra, and he can be found online via
