Winter Solstice Candlestick & Candle Workshop with Hilary Green

| /


Create your own ethereal candlestick and candle with Melbourne based artist Hilary Green at 1280 Gallery this Winter Solstice. 

In our 2.5 hour workshop, you will enter a calming meditative space where Hilary will run you through the connection to yourself and the clay to create a beautiful candlestick. She will then teach you how to dip your own candles. In this process, you will spend time setting your intentions for the second half of the year and putting them inside your candle.

About Hilary:

Hilary Green is a Melbourne-based artist who has worked with clay for over 7 years. Her hand building style is inspired by organic forms, ancient architecture, the ocean, and mythology. In hand building classes, Hilary is passionate about teaching students explorative techniques with the clay to bring about your own style. 

Her work aims to blend a touch of the surreal with functional objects as she is fascinated by the concept of magic domesticity. Often inspired by ancient shapes, she twists familiar forms with modern colours and imperfect textures.

Workshop Includes:

-1x Candle (Additional can be made at $5 each)
-Firing & Glazing of finished work

Your pieces will be ready to collect 3-4 weeks after the workshop
