Exploring Decorative Techniques in Ceramics
with Maria Vanhees
This 5-week course aims to introduce students to simple decorative techniques including making and applying slips, the use of oxides, carving, texturing, sgraffito and resist techniques. Students will also be introduced to slab building and pinching techniques in order to create the forms to be decorated. The effects of the decorative techniques will be explored in firings to earthenware (and where possible mid-fire) temperatures.
Suitable both beginners and advanced learners.
Prior experience in working with clay is good but not absolutely necessary.
