About

Explore a variety of mediums and techniques through unlimited ideas and play. Be introduced to different techniques and learn how to combine wet and dry mediums such as colour powder, charcoal, ink, shellac and acrylics to 2D and 3D objects.
Natural lacquer with Paua shell inlaying and spontaneous wall painting practice will be introduced as new additions to this course.
Create your own lacquer painting on a wooden surface and come away with a completed lacquer piece of your own design.

* Lacquer in Asia is considered socially, symbolically and aesthetically complex and its utmost interpretation engages all five senses of sight, smell, taste, sound and touch. Especially the tactile quality of lacquer and the sensorial experience involved in the making process are equally important as the aesthetic appeal. The term lacquer originates from the Sanskrit word lākshā (लाक्षा) meaning "wax” and has been practiced for centuries predominantly in the East Asian countries of China, Korea and Japan. It traditionally requires high level of craftsmanship to use lacquer to decorate and protect the surfaces of daily items, as well as precious artifacts made with wood, metal, ceramics or leather.
