Five artists ran workshops at ArtPlay over the weekend and everyone attended a range of professional development opportunities including; being part of a creative development of a transgender toys workshop, TOY; a visit to Footscray Community Arts Centre; a workshop on materiality by Kelly Boucher; and a full day program of relationality and creation of arts experiences for children and families at ArtPlay.

Hannah Vorrath-Pajak in residence

After graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Arts specialising in ceramics at the University of South Australia in 2017, Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is now in her second year of the Associate Training Program at JamFactory. Throughout her emerging practice, she has found a love of making both functional ware and exhibition pieces. Through this work she aims to explore research into the natural world and traditional pottery processes.

Hannah is in residence at 1450 for three weeks to be part of the Woodfiring residency in partnership with Ridgeline Pottery and to attend the Australian Ceramics Treinnale Tasmania

Matt Levy in residence

Raised in Arizona, Matthew has been fascinated by geology since a childhood. A recent graduate of the Masters program at Montana State University, Matthew’s primary focus is sourcing local clays and rocks for use as ceramic glaze materials. With a house and studio located in Minnesota, where he lives with his fiancée, he is deeply connected to the growing pottery scene there in the St. Croix River Valley. Matthew’s research into material literacy is evident in his utilitarian vessels, which can be seen on his website www.woodfirelust.com

Grant writing for arts projects workshop

It was effective at breaking down all of the steps involved in applying for funding…

I have done a couple of applications and need some help to improve and develop – this workshop has been invaluable for remedying this.

Thanks; new ideas, succinct doable steps, generous information of whats out there to support us…

comments from participants

Debby Maziarz ran a three hour workshop, at all that we are, for ArTELIER artists to help them make better applications for arts funding.

Library resources at all that we are

 

Bec Stevens has been cataloguing and labelling the art book collection at 1450 South Arm Road. We intend to make some of the resources available for loan to ArTELIER artists and will bring small collections to future ArTELIER sessions. Its a growing collection, particularly of social practice/teaching artistry/community arts texts. The collection sits on the bookshelves in the big meeting room at the South end of the house.

Self Assembly at Salamanca Art Centre

Simon delivered the first of a new series of Saturday morning children’s programming at Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart today. The annual stART program includes a whole range of arts activities for children and families created by a range of ArTELIER artists. Bec Stevens worked alongside Simon with families to create another Self Assembly installation and creative encounter using wood from the land and plaster bandages.

ArTELIER 2019

We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in applications to both Tas Arts and The Australia Council for the Arts to continue and grow the ArTELIER program through 2019. This offers new possibilities and includes some projects, research and a summer camp.
We are thrilled at the affirmation of all our work to date and are pleased with this national acknowledgement of the need for this activity in Tasmania.

We shall be updating the website in the coming weeks to reflect this growth in the project. Watch this space…

stART at Salamanca Arts Centre

Salamanca Arts Centre and ArTELIER kick off 2019 with the exciting announcement of the collaborative project, stART. stART is a program of artist lead encounters connecting children, families, and young people. stART is NOT your average creative holiday workshop where young participants are dropped off and picked up after a couple of hours after getting creative with butchers paper and crayons. stART’s point of difference is that parents/guardians are also included. The stART program has been specifically designed for both children and their parent/s or guardian/s wanting to participate together in Tasmanian artist led experiences.
