Clay As a Canvas: Imagery On Porcelain

May 31, 2020 – June 6, 2020

Mallory Wetherell

In this hands-on workshop students will experiment working with two- and three-dimensional objects. Participants begin by creating simplified functional and/or sculptural forms made from porcelain, which will later serve as their canvas. Then you will learn how to convert found imagery into stencils to be transferred onto bone-dry clay. Working with a variety of underglaze washes allows you to build surface to paint detailed and realistic images on porcelain. Students are encouraged to bring to class a variety of printed images as reference during their work. Open to all skill levels.
