Inkjet Printing on to Clay

Jenny Hodge is having an amazing response to the article on Inkjet Printing on to Clay that is in our Zart Extra this term and on our website – the emails are coming in from teachers all over Australia – Darwin, Tasmania – everywhere. Visit Jenny's new website: We even have a date for the Zart workshop next year which is Saturday 24th March 2012 when Jenny will share her technique with you. Ring Jan on 03 98901867 for further details.
On Jenny's website there is not only the method but even a promo video of students actually printing on the clay.

Dreaming with Open Eyes

I attended the opening of Pamela Irving's Dreaming with Open Eyes exhibition at The Light Factory in Eltham and was blown out by the breadth of her talent. The big bold bright colours of her paintings can't help but bring a smile to your face. The quirky titles will make you giggle, so if your day needs brightening up I can highly recommend this exhibition.
I also found this article in The Age that you might be interested in:

Congratulations Pamela, your commitment and passion never fails to amaze me
