There’s A Pattern Here
May 24, 2020 – May 30, 2020
During this workshop students will develop pattern on vessel forms. Class demonstrations include wheel throwing and handbuilding techniques. Using these techniques as a foundation, participants will experiment with pattern to create multi-layered and creative surfaces. You will then move into surface treatments using inlay and stencil methods with colored slips on greenware. All work will be made in cone 5 clays and be glaze fired using a clear glaze in the electric kilns. Students are encouraged to bring sketches and source materials that relate to forms and patterns. Both wheel throwing and handbuilding are encouraged. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
