hellkatdesigns And just a heads up that my next market is coming up soon: @craftvictoria's New Craft market at Queen Vic market on Sunday 7th Sept (Father's Day!). Lineup is looking pretty good with some familiar faces! I'll have a range of my ceramicy stuff on the day, including the ever-popular cats, marbled porcelain and #embroideredceramics range. #hellkatdesigns #newcraft #melbourne #ceramics 2d

hellkatdesigns Oh heyyy, sorry for being out of insta-routine lately. I HAVE been making, though it is work that is super different and new for HKD! I've been playing around with my drawings and paintings (especially pieces I created during my Billilla residency), creating pretty cool images and patterns. Sooo many ideas for the output, but i'll be starting out with prints. Stay tuned! #comingsoon #hellkatdesigns #coloursplosion 2d

hellkatdesigns New stuff, making patterns! This started as a drawing of my ceramic bead necklaces. #hellkatdesigns 3w

hellkatdesigns Oh heyyy IG...it's been a while, huh? This is my new(ish) workspace - amazing what rearranging the loungeroom and buying a desk can achieve! Plus, it's given me that extra benefit of working from home - all day PJs. YES. 4w

hellkatdesigns And on that note, this is one of the works I donated to Bayside as part of my residency. This is an #ecoprint (using plants from the #Billilla gardens like the heritage roses) and an ink drawing of the mansion on calico. 2mon

hellkatdesigns At the open studio this particular bit of wall received huge interest. It was so cool to have so many people want to know more about #ecoprinting! #Billilla 2mon

hellkatdesigns ...the colour-fest in the studio influenced my painting too. For someone who wears A LOT of black, I sure make colourful artworks. #Billilla 2mon

hellkatdesigns At the recent workshop held in my studio one of the students was all "yay colour!". Plain white walls were just too boring for my own workspace... #Billilla 2mon

hellkatdesigns And this was my place! The old servant quarters. Also a favourite backdrop for photographers - who say the weirdest things trying to get smiles out of their subjects! Not like YOU @reneeatleephotography x #Billilla 2mon

hellkatdesigns I brought my camera with me on the final days of my residency, so i'll share some of the pics over the next few days. The small building on the left in the foreground is the old meat store, and behind it next to the arch is another studio - the old butler's quarters. Like my studio, they were built in the late 1800s. #Billilla 2mon

hellkatdesigns Aaannd my year-long residency at #Billilla is over! Sadly I recently had to pack up and leave this haven where I gained so much inspiration. Big thanks to Bayside Council for providing such an amazing opportunity - art spaces like this are really important, and it is brilliant to have a council and local community be so supportive by providing the studios and running a residency program. Can't wait to develop some of my ideas from the residency into new awesomeness soon! #onwardsandupwards 2mon

hellkatdesigns In less than a week my year-long #Billilla residency will be over and i'll have to pack up and leave my studio. So sad at the thought of leaving this place, but also super grateful for how AMAZING the experience has been. I feel like I found my inner-artist again, you know? Bayside and the community have been so wonderful also. And now I just need to finish off the final artworks! 2mon

hellkatdesigns Eco-printing workshop went so well today! The students were really enthusiastic (hitting things with a hammer = good times), they made some cool works...and were surprised that they had fun hah! Awesome day. Hopefully i've imparted a wee bit o' inspiration to them all! 2mon

hellkatdesigns I have a VCE school group visiting my studio and doing a workshop with me next week! Thought i'd do a little project with some eco-printing and drawing. Something a bit different...and hopefully interesting enough to keep them engaged! 3mon
