Vessels & Containment
with Darlys Ewoldt

  • where: Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle
  • when: 30 January to 1 February, three days (post-conference)
  • cost: $375 - students $325

The Vessels & Containment workshop will feature angle raising, forming, fabrication and patination. The workshop will focus on the vessel form and the concept of containment. Each participant will form a small vessel through the process of angle raising. Inspiration, design and construction will be discussed. Patination methods will be demonstrated with everyone completing a series of patina samples.

Darlys teaches at Columbia College, Chicago. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions and collections throughout the USA. She has been the recipient of multiple grants and awards, including Ford Foundation Fellowship and Project Grants and the Governor James R Thompson Award for Excellence in Craft.

In her work, the vessel is an object of containment, protection, or shelter, and creative influences are derived from landscapes, movements and objects observed in nature, poetry, and random voyages of the imagination.
