Tuesday maker's morning
I'm starting a Maker's morning at my studio in Melville on Tuesday mornings and would love to have you here! This is a space for you to work on whatever you are working on, share, get feedback and have a cup of tea. R80/morning.
Please contact me if you would like to join us.
Natural DYeing & Eco-printing playday
I've been playing around with natural dyeing and eco-printing for a few months now and have a couple of for friends who would like to experience the process. I am very much at the beginning of my learning but would love to have a play day in which we can do just that, PLAY!!! Let me know if you would like to join us so we can set a date (somewhere among the holiday days in April)
STUDIO IRA BEKKER
Welcome! Feel free to treat this website like an open studio and browse around. Look at the images, dream about the workshops and join me soon for a morning or a day or a week of just being. To me the creative state is our most natural state so that when I can just be and engage creatively I am at my very happiest and most settled in my being.
I’ve had the immense privilege to deepen into my creative processes over the last ten months and spent my time working with clay, textiles, paper, found objects and most recently plants. I had the opportunity to do a 3-month peer-mentoring program at Assemblage Studios in Newtown which enabled me to start working independently and confidently at creating work for a future exhibition. I discovered that I am much more of an expressive artist than a conceptual artist and that I love creating without an idea of what the outcome will be. I also discovered that I love sharing what I learn and that above all things it is my passion to inspire, to nurture and to create.
So this website is both a sharing and an invitation to join me in this wonderful creative adventure. Sign up for my blog, come back for inspiration and join me for a workshop. Hope to meet you soon…
