TANIA ROLLOND is a Sydney-based artist who has been refining her approach to drawing and painting on the ceramic surface for over two decades. She studied design at Curtin University and ceramics at the National Art School, before completing an MFA in drawing at UNSW. She has been exhibiting and teaching around Australia and overseas since 2001, is included in the collections of Bendigo and Shepparton Art Museums, and has featured in publications such as Ceramics Monthly, Clay (Thames and Hudson) and Ceramics (Chronicle Books).

Drawing and painting are fundamental aspects of Tania's art practice that intersect poetically and rhythmically with her sculptural ceramics forms. Sometimes they are recognisable but more often only vaguely familiar. her work combines a strong interest in drawing, or mark making, with ceramics. A particular quality of line is probably her signature - a rather fragile, delicate line, which often contrasts with very simple, minimal forms.

Join Tania for a creative workshop details as follows:

Sat 15 Sept
"¢ 9:45am Meet at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery to view the Clay Intersections' exhibition, and hear artists Tania Rollond and Helen Earl in conversation with Cath Fogarty.
"¢ 12:00pm Meet for lunch at Coffs Harbour TAFE
"¢ 12:30 - 4:00pm Tania will show examples of her working process, tools and materials, and demonstrate her techniques for construction (pinching, coiling, using plaster press-moulds) and surface design.

Sun 16 Sept
"¢ 9:30 - 4:00pm Hands-on in the workshop, make customised drawing tools and art materials, before moving on to artworks on paper and clay. Tania will guide participants through a series of simple, intuitive exercises and discussions aimed at building or expanding each artists' personal vocabulary of marks.
"¢ You can expect to take home some new drawing tools and experimental brushes, hand-made ceramic chalks, and your own set of ceramic watercolour' paints, as well as a series of drawing and painting experiments on paper, fresh clay tiles, or pots (if you bring your own bisque pieces to the workshop).
