Storytelling through Illustration with Fruzsi Kenez

Event Date: Sat 04 May

Event Time: 10.30 AM - 1.30 PM

Event Location: Riddoch Studio

Event Type:

This workshop with Adelaide-based ceramicist and illustrator Fruzsi Kenez focuses on the art of finding magic in ordinary moments, and releasing the fear of putting brush to paper.

Finding the magic in quiet, seemingly ordinary events is how Fruzsi approaches her illustrated stories, which start with a single, simple moment, such as an unravelling ball of yarn or wondering about a missing piece of cheese. This 3 hour workshop will also include watercolour techniques and exercises and some wonderful mind- opening crafty challenges to get you thinking outside the square.

The workshop fee covers three hours of tuition, all professional quality materials including brushes, watercolour paints and tools, in addition to fun surprise materials as well as a take-home kit for continued work including a Moleskine journal and fineline pen. There will also be a small afternoon tea.

No experience necessary.
Cost: $99 per person
Suitable for ages 14 and older

Limited spaces available. To book your place please contact Riddoch Art Gallery on 08 8721 2563.  Payment is required prior to the commencement of the workshop, with a $50 deposit required upon booking.

Meet Fruzsi Kenez!

Fruzsi (pronounced froo-shee) is an Adelaide-based painter, ceramicist and curator. A practicing artist for over 10 years, Fruzsi began teaching ceramic and illustration workshops in 2015, and last year began visiting interstate and regional art galleries to offer these unique events to local audiences.

“For me, it is an incredible honour and privilege to travel to regional communities to teach the craft of hand-built ceramics, and watercolour illustration with the focus on releasing the fear of putting brush to paper. The experience and knowledge gained through these workshops has long-lasting positive effects that can enliven and empower the lives of students and those around them.”

Fruzsi is best known for her quirky portraits and creates many private portrait commissions for customers worldwide. She is also a self-professed cat whisperer and avid nature walker.
