ARTIST TALK: Peter Atkins on Clement Meadmore  

Sunday 23rd June 2:00pm-4:00pm 

Join us at Duldig Studio for a Sunday afternoon artist talk with acclaimed artist Peter Atkins to discuss the enduring life, work and legacy of Clement Meadmore, as well as his own collaborative exhibition with Dana Harris at Tarrawarra Museum of Art.

Discussing Industrial furniture design, Sculpture and Modernism Peter Atkins will explore the design and production processes of Meadmore.

Like Karl Duldig, Clement Meadmore was a championing figure for the Modernist aesthetic, and for this reason we are proud to invite Peter Atkin to talk about the ‘Industrial Design of Clement Meadmore: The Harris/Atkins Collection’. Exhibiting at Tarrawarra Museum of Art until 14th July.

Design Discussion Group in conjunction with Melbourne Art Library – ONLINE

25 June  7:30-9:00 PM AEST

Duldig Studio and Melbourne Art Library (MAL) have partnered to deliver a facilitated discussion exploring the broad topic of design.

The Discussion will run for three online evening sessions  with the final, fourth Book Club meeting taking place face-to-face at the Duldig Studio.

Two weeks before each session participants will be sent three articles based on a design focused topic. The Discussion will then be facilitated by the expert librarians at MAL encouraging participants to discuss the themes within the articles.

It will be a wonderful, inspiring and fun program that you can enjoy from home – encouraging you to reflect and discuss with others the impact of design.

The final fourth session will be held in the Duldig Studio on a date to be decided by the club.

Participants can book individual sessions but to create the best club experience we encourage you to book the series.

“It was riveting, informative and insightful. It was an honour to be amongst such talent.”

Cost $15.00 per session

Quirky Creatures: A Roola Boola Event 

Tuesday 9th July & Thursday 11th July 10:30am-12pm 

Quirky Creatures will inspire children to invent and sculpt in clay imaginary animals based on the sculptures found in the Duldig Studio.

The program will start with a young person’s tour of the Duldig House Museum where participants will be introduced to the life and sculptures, many of them of animals, of the eminent artist Karl Duldig (1902 – 1984).

Participants will then work with our sculptor in residence in a real-life sculptor’s studio to make sculptures based on their ideas, imagination, and creativity. It will be fun and messy!

Included in the sculpture morning will be a treasure hunt in the Duldig Studio sculpture garden where children can explore and be challenged by over 30 sculptures in our beautiful sculpture garden.

Ticket price includes morning tea.

Sculpture Workshop with Stefan Damschke 

Sunday 14th July 1pm-4pm

Facilitated by Duldig’s sculptor-in-residence, Stefan Damschke, this class lets you roll up your sleeves and engage with Duldig Studio in a new way, by getting hands-on experience while learning about sculpture from a creative practitioner.

Let your creativity flow as you master how to mould and shape your clay into unique pieces to take home. Learn techniques in this hand-building sculpture workshop designed for adults and feel inspired by the surrounding work of the Duldig Studio Ceramic collection.


This is a flexible workshop suitable for beginners looking to build a foundation as well as more experienced sculptors wishing to develop their techniques. Learn about key concepts including balance and structure which will be indispensable for your further sculptural journey.

Stefan Damschke worked with Karl Duldig, as student and then as his assistant from 1976-86, and has been curator and sculpture teacher at Duldig Studio since 1999. He studied a Bachelor of Arts (Ceramic Design) at Monash University, and Bachelor of Arts (Literary Studies & Philosophy/History of Ideas) Deakin University.
