Nature art work shop

You may have spotted on Instragram last Thursday and Friday that I attended the inaugural creative workshop at River Hawk Ranch an immersion into art and nature with Dominique Sutton 

To say the workshop was amazing is an understatement , a couple, of days deep in art and nature on a beautiful property by the river in Brunswick heads was magical.

We foraged for materials and tools, painted by the river and in the new studio at River Hawk

Lucky there is going to be more click here to see more and to find out about other workshops

K I N T S U G I  WORKSHOP

Join Naomi Taplin from studio enti and nikau store to explore the traditional Japanese art of kintsugi and learn a modern spin to the ancient repair technique.

The philosophy of kintsugi sees the broken piece brought back to life with a new level of beauty, both aesthetically and through the trauma it has experienced. The application of gold (or silver) to the exposed vein of the mended piece creates a visual representation of a mended scar and each process – the make, the break and the mend – creates a story that adds to the value and beauty of the object.

Participants will practice an adapted method of this technique using modern glue and powders. There will be a selection of broken pieces to choose from to repair and keep or you can bring your own broken treasures to work on. All materials will be supplied and each participant will receive a small kit they can take home to continue their kintsugi adventures.
