Northern Grampians Shire CEO Justine Linley tries her hand tries her hand at clay sculpture with WAMA Patron Glenda Lewin and Pomonal artist Beverly Grace.

‘Seeding the Arts’ is the title of WAMA’s exciting new Community Arts initiative which will bring together artists and people of all ages to create works drawn from their experiences with nature.

The first project in the program centres on the almost magical process of “RAKU” through the making and firing of small ceramic sculptures inspired by the shapes and textures of gumnuts and seedpods.

Participants will be guided through the whole process from shaping the raw clay to the spectacular firing by ceramicist Georgia Ryden using a kiln specifically built for the project by local craftsmen, Graeme McKechnie and Peter Flinn.

From this pilot event WAMA intends to engage artists and communities throughout the state and eventually nationwide.

The finished RAKU pieces are destined to be used in a major installation at the Museum and other appropriate public institutions, galleries and gardens.

“This is just the first of several workshop projects we plan to develop,” Michelle Forbes said.

Visitors to the event this Sunday will also be treated to guided tours of the spectacular “Grannes” native gardens designed by Barbara Reading, an Art Exhibit by some of Australia’s most celebrated wildlife artists and tea, coffee with scones fresh from the oven, locally sourced home-made jams and cream.

The cost is $10 for adults with children under 12 free and all funds will go towards the WAMA Museum project.
