Jenny Orchard's workshop was a wonderful opportunity to take a step back, breathe deeply and shake off those shackles of rigidity.
We were given a good dose of playfulness which we put into practice when creating our own forms that Jenny pieced together to create five quirky characters at the end of the day. Check them out when you next visit the Workshop - images below.
Jenny began by demonstrating her relaxed coil construction, building a Simpson-like head whose character developed as the form grew. We enjoyed participating in creating this devilish noggin.
Later Jenny showed us a quick platter technique, as well as some simple flower forms - tips learned from a friend involved in cake decorating.
Relax, play and be adventurous with form.

Hi I am a teacher at St Clair High School and would be interested in any workshop Jenny is doing. We are also studying her sculptures at School in Visual Arts. And would be interested in where her workshop is or promoting her to come out to the school for a visit.
