Want to learn to add unique designs to your pottery, or to transfer your drawings to ceramics? This three week workshop will start with drawing exercises using found objects and organic forms to develop pattern and line during the first week. In the second week we will cover techniques such as sgraffito, mishima, slip transfer, and more to embellish leather-hard greenware with your designs. After bisque firing, we will have one final meeting to glaze your creations. Beginners welcome, but some experience working with clay will be useful.
Students are welcome to bring their own leather-hard greenware to work with, or practice on clay slabs that will be available in class.
