Clay Fall One-Week Session III
November 3-9, 2019
Sketch Your Way into Clay
This workshop will explore techniques for surface design on clay. We’ll create simple forms through wheelthrowing and handbuilding and then spend the rest of our time learning techniques such as inlay, sgraffito, stamping, slip transfers, wax and tape resists, and water etching. Sketchbook drawing and painting exercises will help us create original motifs, patterns, and personal surfaces. We’ll have daily demonstrations and individual meetings. Anyone who loves drawing is encouraged to join us, regardless of previous clay experience. We’ll work with mid-range red and white clay and fire to cone 6 oxidation. All levels. Code F03CB
