Blacktown residents tell stories of this City, immortalising memories of now and then.
Local ceramic artists Mike Moore and Jeff Lees from Highlands Pottery will work with residents to explore Blacktown history and create a personalised artwork from an old or new archival family image.
Through a thoughtful and enjoyable process, Mike and Jeff will help you print your image onto a tile and show you how to create a work of art from your image.
Each participant will be required to come back the following week to complete their piece.
Please bring in an image on your phone, a jpeg photo on a USB or a printed A4 hard copy and it can be scanned on the day.
During the workshop you will produce your own ceramic photograph on a 400mm x 250mm ceramic tile.
Please bring an apron and wear closed in shoes for the workshops.
The tiles will be exhibited in the workshop studio in March.
Workshops will run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in February
