Session 3: Surface Level, Tuesday Mornings
Session 3: Surface Level: Getting to Know Glazing, Tuesday Mornings
If the buckets and jars of the glaze room give you anxiety, fear not! This class will help you make sense of the Cone 6 glazes, slips, patinas, and terra sigillatas present in the Claymakers studio.
Students will learn techniques which, used individually or in combination, can create a compelling surface design. Topics covered will include: how to layer slips, paper and wax resist techniques, as well as the techniques of slip trailing and sgraffito.
Whether you're moving toward a more maximalist aesthetic, or just want to gain confidence in your decorating, this class will give you a springboard for exploring the wonderful world of surface.
Demos will focus on functional work. This will be a wheel-based class, but handbuilders are welcome!
