A Layered Surface
July 22, 2018 – July 28, 2018
The focus of this workshop is for students to utilize a variety of mark making and transfer techniques to explore imagery and alternative approaches to surface development. You will use under glazes, wet erosion and underglaze pencils to create information below the glaze, followed by work with decals and china paint to layer above the glaze. Through this workshop students will gain a deeper understanding of mark making on clay. Participants are welcome (but not required) to bring glazed work to apply decals and china paint, keeping in mind gloss glaze and lighter colors, or clear with porcelain, yield more vibrant results. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
