ClayMotion’s mission is to offer specialized classes and workshops catering to a range of groups within the community, including skills development for emerging and established artists; education and leisure pursuits for the general public; therapeutic and well being activities; and team building experiences.

These goals are reached through the quality delivery of professional services that promote art and clay as a therapeutic and expressive medium within the context of both skill based and leisure based classes and workshops.

ClayMotion was established by Dawn Whitehand, a practicing artist since 2000. Dawn has a PhD in visual arts, majoring in sculptural ceramics, and has exhibited widely both internationally and Australia wide.

She has written peer review and general journal articles, and has taught at University level through to local community centre level. Dawn's artworks are held in many gallery and private collections.

ClayMotion is located in Dunnstown, Ballarat, at the foot of Mt Warrenheip, and offers a beautiful and peaceful art-making environment.
