Embossing the Boat Masterclass with Denise Pepper

Join Denise Pepper in this magnificent masterclass where you’ll create an ornate embossed 3-D vessel from aluminium shim.

Everything you will need will be supplied and you’ll even get your own take-home toolkit to continue your creation. Denise Pepper (BVA) is a WA artist and the recipient of the 2017 WA Sculptor Scholarship at Cottesloe Sculpture by the Sea. Initially an art-glass sculptor Pepper’s recent practice has featured the creation of large sculptural works utilising a variety of materials and is a regular contributor at the Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions. Pepper won the 2012 National Ranamok Art Glass Prize, and was named the 2009 Ausglass Emerging Artist, (the Vicki Torr Prize). Pepper has also won numerous People’s choice and Sculpture Prizes at Australian exhibitions.

Pepper’s work regularly considers the craftsmanship in the fabrication of lace and embroidery by translating this textiles-based research into unique glass and sculptural art. Her art applies an innovative use of materials and design to construct an imaginative concept. In 2021 Denise participated in the Viacom Channel 10 Production for Making It Australia which was broadcast nationally on the 10 Network. A significant component of this workshop will be an embossed design of your choice, directly onto the soft aluminium shim. This highly experienced facilitator has used embossing and stippling techniques on a number of projects previously. Facilitation will run for 4 hours with a 1-hour lunch break. Please BYO lunch
