This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to surface decoration techniques and how to embrace vibrant color on clay work. We will practice stencil resist techniques with a variety of materials to push surface design experimentation on wet clay and bisqueware. Applying personal inspiration and imagery to promote idea development, we will work small and focus primarily on technique. The goal is to expand your surface decoration repertoire. This course is open to all skill levels. Hand- builders and wheel throwers are welcome. Previous experience in clay will be helpful.
TIME: 10 AM – 5 PM
*Students should be prepared to take home leather hard work or pick up bisque fired work at a later date. Students should also bring bisque titles for vinyl resist. We will work at cone 6.
