HANDBUILDING AND SURFACE DECORATION (2 day workshop)

from 45.00

Join Naomi Clement for a two consecutive day handbuilding and surface decoration workshop.

Day one: HANDBUILDING DEMONSTRATION

In this comprehensive 3 hour long demonstration, you will be shown Naomi’s handbuilding techniques, including how to make hand-build forms using slabs, bisque molds and simple templates. Basic forms such as cups and other table ware will be covered. There will be plenty of time for questions at the end of the session. Please note, this is only a demonstration class - you will not be making anything during this session.

Day two: SURFACE DECORATION HANDS-ON WORKSHOP

In this workshop, Naomi will cover how she uses colored underglaze and slips at the leather hard stage to decorate her work, as well as how to use simple paper resists to create pattern and achieve a layered look. Students will have the opportunity to explore these techniques on clay tiles provided.

Please note, if students want these tiles fired, regular firing charges will be applied. These can be found here.
