Our workshop will focus on altering wheel-thrown (or hand-built) forms a little and a lot. We will then embellish those forms with an array of decoration techniques from stamping and slip-trailing to sponging and resists. The result can be functional or sculptural, minimal, or extravagant. You will leave the workshop with a collection of new skills and the confidence to play and draw from your own influences. You will also take home a grouping of bisqued stamps and pieces showing your explorations for the week.
Demonstrations include throwing, altering and building off the wheel, darting, and a variety of decoration techniques including: slip-trailing, stamp-making, and stamping. We will discuss aesthetics and proportion, timing in clay, idea-generation, progressing one’s own work with learned techniques, and studio ergonomics.
This workshop and its techniques are equally suitable for both throwers and hand-builders.
Basic wheel-throwing and/or handbuilding skills necessary.
Length: 3 days
11 participants maximum
Clay is not included (The Rozynski Art Centre caries a variety of clay, sold at competitive prices)
