Dee Credaro

Dee will provide 2 templates for participants to choose from and a list of materials. Students will need one porcelain round plate 20 – 25cm across. The process will have all but the last stage done in the 3 hours. The very last stage will require an extra fire at home.

The process will involve wet grounding, a little dry sprinkling, sponging with water based medium, lustres and cutting out. Along the way we will discuss choice of colours and different options for variations. NOTES will be provided of the steps taken on the day. We will finish the workshop off with Cheese and Bubbles.

About Dee Credaro

I live in the centre of the universe, Wildwood Road, Carbunup River, Western Australia. I have always lived on a farm not far from the ocean, and in constant contact with animals, birds, bush and beach.

Although growing up with an artistic mother, I did not really begin my own visual arts journey till motherhood slowed down more physical pursuits.

However, now, after almost 30 years of exploring many mediums, including pastels, oils, acrylics, encaustic, mixed media, watercolours, inks, mosaics and for the last 8 years, porcelain painting, I am constantly looking for satisfying and appealing ways to share my passion for our Australian way of life. The skills I bring from other media, translate well into basic composition and design on porcelain.

My personal goal in porcelain painting, is to lift the profile of this medium in Australia to that of fine arts. It is SO much more than a craft. As such, I now paint many of my pieces as art to be hung, and enter exhibitions in the oils category.

Promoting porcelain painting both educates the public and brings in new enthusiasts, to this amazing form of art.
