Join Judith Pungarta Inkamala and Hayley Panangka Coulthard, Western Aranda Artists from the renowned Hermannsburg Potters for an afternoon of art. This workshop is a rare opportunity to hear Hayley and Judith discuss their work and observe the artists working with clay and underglaze paint to create their unique pieces.

The Hermannsburg Potters are a dedicated group of Western Aranda artists creating instantly recognisable, ceramic pots which tell visual histories while speaking to their cultural beliefs, traditions and values.  The artists currently practicing are continuing a 30-year legacy of painting and sculpting at the centre.

Hermannsburg Potters’ artists have collaborated to create a large pot and accompanying animation in the current exhibition Clay on CountryThe large-scale ceramic work and animation tells stories surrounding weather and seasons on Western Aranda Country and provides a glimpse into the artists’ profound knowledge of and connection to Country as they depict Western Aranda life and landscapes during eturna (hot season) and lhurrpa (cold season).
