This two-day hands-on workshop will focus on altering wheel-thrown (or hand-built) forms a little and a lot. We will then embellish those forms with an array of decoration techniques from stamping and slip-trailing to sponging and resists. The result can be functional or sculptural, minimal, or extravagant. You will leave the workshop with a collection of new skills and the confidence to play and draw from your own influences.

Demonstrations include throwing, altering and building off the wheel, darting, and a variety of decoration techniques including slip-trailing, stamp-making, and stamping. We will discuss aesthetics and proportion, timing in clay, idea-generation, and progress one’s own work with learned techniques.

Participants will make stamps, as well as play with slip-trailing and paper, resist. This workshop and its techniques are equally suitable for both throwers and hand-builders. Basic wheel-throwing and/or hand-building skills necessary.

April 14th and 15th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with a one-hour lunch break. Maximum of 15 participants.
