EXHIBITION SHOWING: Friday 18 August – Saturday 21 October, 2023
This workshop is being held in conjunction with the Open Home exhibition by Georgia Claridge.
Participants are invited by the artist to learn more about her current practice and model-making techniques through a workshop. Enjoy an opportunity to make your own miniature furniture at a 1:12 scale. The workshop will start with a brief artist talk and Q&A, before participants will make their way down to TAC’s workshop space for a 1 hour miniature making session. Workshop participants will be able to select from three miniature models to make, learning a different technique with each. At the end of the session, they will be able to take away either their own working lamp on a bedside table, functional cabinet with a sink or selection of miniature artworks and framed pictures.
About the artist
Formally trained as a painter, Georgia began her journey as an artist with a fascination of everyday objects. Working across a range of media, her works explore the absurdity of the everyday through the lens of personal narrative. Although she is constantly experimenting with new mediums, Georgia finds herself continually reaching back to the same thematic elements, and how they are emphasised through material choices. Through this evolution she is delighted to share her works exploring the fragility and impermanence of life, and its reflection in the material.
A recent graduate of the Australian National University, Georgia holds a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Visual Arts. Her multi-medium works can be found in both private and public collections, from the National Film and Sound Archive to ANU’s College of Health and Medicine. Georgia currently holds a residency at Studio Studio.
