Lots O’ Layers

June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018

Meredith Host

This workshop explores surface decorating using screen printing techniques, stencils, transfers and decals. Students will work with simple forms (tiles, cups, bowls, plates) to practice building layers of information. The goal is to gain an understanding of new ways to approach surface and decoration. You will produce dynamic surfaces by expanding your visual vocabulary and creating custom color palettes. Cone 6 porcelain will be used, but these methods are applicable to all types of clays. Participants are encouraged to bring source material for surface treatment. Hand builders and wheel throwers are welcome. Open to all skill levels.
