We are thrilled to have Fiona Lewis leading this workshop. A multidisciplinary artist, Fiona has an Honours degree from RMIT. She has a strong interest in environmental spaces and shapes which flow through into her ceramic practice where she combines her love for organic silhouettes with the natural earthbound material of clay. Fiona is an experienced teacher who enjoys imparting her skills both on the wheel and with hand-built forms with students.
