Melbourne singer/songwriter Jess Fairlie is heading to Birregurra Church with her delicious blend of soul with a funky vocal rhythm. With a voice likened to Alicia Keys, Jess's style is a sultry nod to the soul funk that legends Stevie Wonder and Ricki Lee Jones have embraced through their music artistry. Grab your tickets ASAP - this is definitely a show not to miss.
Pottery classes run for two hours and are available Mondays and Tuesdays with sessions in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Students pay an “up front” fee for a six week period which covers all material costs including use of tools, clay, glazes, and firings. A wide range of hand building, glazing and decorating techniques are offered as an introduction.
Generally, after several weeks students choose to create individual works with assistance, resulting a large range of projects happening at any one time. As classes are small (no more than six students per class) plenty of assistance is available.
Many of my students have had minimal experience with clay and it is so gratifying to watch them become more confident with each project they attempt.
I have loved meeting many lovely new people who have joined my classes and look forward to seeing what the future brings.
The 2018 Surf Coast Arts Trail will be held over Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 August. The popular annual event is an opportunity to discover art and meet the artists in their studios and creative venues from the coast to the hinterland.

I have a warm comfortable studio in which to enhance your creativity!!
I will supply a 40 x 40 cm piece of cement sheet, which is suitable for hanging indoors and outdoors. Flat surfaces are easier to mosaic as a beginner.
Cost includes the cement sheet, glue, tiles and grout and tools to share. Everything you need!You will learn the basics of how to create a mosaic - suitable for different items and different conditions such as outdoors.
You will also learn which tools are used and how to employ them with unique results.
You will get knowledge and skills that I have learned from 18 years experience.
Small group tuition - classes are limited to 6 students.
A finished mosaic of your making.
Includes tea and coffee
You do not need to bring any materials unless you want to. You may wish to bring along old sentimental broken crockery, old jewellery, cutlery, shells etc. (Maybe from the Op Shop) to add individuality to your work . Alternatively, just turn up and I can guide you.
I do insist that you have some sort of design in mind. Could be a flower for instance, a house number, anything that takes your fancy! If you don’t have any idea this takes the first whole session for you to
decide! Would be great if you could roughly draw up your design on a piece of paper 40 x 40 cm. Don’t stress, all this can be worked out on the day if this is not possible!
Wear comfy clothes. You may want to wear an apron.
I’m very versatile so if a class is missed you can make it up another time in consultation with me.
Last of all it’s a time to meet new people and enjoy the process!!!!!! 😆
