Want to learn to add unique designs to your pottery, or to transfer your drawings to ceramics? This four week workshop will incorporate drawing exercises to develop pattern and line, and cover a wide variety of techniques such as graffito, mishima, slip transfer, underglaze decals, and more to embellish leather-hard greenware with your designs. After bisque firing, we will discuss relevant glazing techniques to augment your surface design. This class is open to new students as well as folks who want to continue on from the previous session!
Students are welcome to bring their own leather-hard greenware to work with, or practice on clay slabs that will be available in class.
