While people love creating things in clay, whether it is on the wheel or handbuilding, there is an unconscious way of excluding the process of finishing a form. Join us this Fall Session for Surface Design! If you have ever had trouble trying to come up with a way to finish a ceramic form, now is the chance to delve into a course that presents considerations of form and surface hand in hand to bring about the fullest potential of what you have created. The instructor will demonstrate a variety of surface enrichment techniques to help elevate your ceramics to the next level. Each week you will be introduced to two new techniques that broaden the design aspects of your ceramic art. Instructor will demonstrate carving, stamping, impressing, piercing, sgraffito, mishima, inlay, slip trailing, resist etching, sprigging, colored clay, agateware, monoprinting, layering, drawing and stenciling. This class will focus on process rather than the creation of the work. You can take notes, work along with air dry clay or if you have a studio please feel free to work along.
Please arrive on time to class.
This class is live and interactive.
Recordings will not be shared.
