Do you like to draw, doodle or design? Learn to bring your 2D design ideas to your 3D ceramic work. In this class students will explore ways to create a variety of rich surface decoration on wheel thrown or hand built ceramic forms. Weekly demos will cover techniques such as slip transfers, stenciling, stamping, slip inlay, sgraffito, wax resists and more. Wheel throwing experience is helpful but not necessary, the course will cover basic hand building techniques to make vessels that will serve as a canvas for design ideas. Students are encouraged to bring a sketchbook to class — this class is open to all levels. Students will receive a complimentary 25 pound bag of cone 6 clay, but may need to purchase additional clay for their personal projects. All other materials and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week; either on Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Friday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm, or Sunday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.
