Muddy Girl Studio, a pottery studio and school located in The Basin, are inviting residents to help them create one-of-a-kind pieces of public art for The Basin Triangle Park.
Participants will be asked to use stencils to carve figurines and paint images of local animals and plants to decorate 5 drum-like ceramic stools made by pottery teachers at the school. The aim is to link the chairs with their immediate surroundings – a wonderful environment full of native animals and plants.
The sessions are being run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 27 and 28 November. Residents are invited to register for the sessions at Pavilion Basin Triangle Park, 1326 Mountain Highway, The Basin, Victoria 3154.
This is a family-friendly event however it is targeted at adults and all children must be accompanied by a ticketed adult. Tickets are free!
Pottery wheels will be on full display for the public, and demonstrations of ceramic painting skills will be shared with visitors during the workshops.
The chairs will be installed in The Basin Triangle Park in December, providing an everlasting symbol of our community coming together.
This community arts project is designed to build social connectedness, promote cultural diversity, and contribute to our community identity. It is supported by a Knox City Council Placemaking and Liveable Communities Grant which helped fund the materials for the project, artists’ time, and installation costs of the chair.
Applications are currently open for the Business Support Grant – Placemaking and Liveable Communities Grant (Round 2). Artists and creative organisations with community centric art projects in Knox are invited to apply at knoxbiz.com.au/businessrecovery
