June 6 – 12, 2021

Intriguing designs and satin like surfaces without glaze

Handbuilding. For all

Introduction

In this course we will explore colour, pattern and imagery using various techniques of staining and layering slips and porcelains.

Techniques taught

The technique involves laminating layers of coloured clays,  inlaid with hand-cut patterns and then rolling and stretching the flat sheets, ready for press moulding or slab building. The program will include painting and pouring slips, impressing clays, utilising stencils and adding fine inlay to create clay collages. The decoration will be integral. Finishing techniques will enhance the qualities of the clay to produce a soft, matt surface before the works are fired, supported in sand and saggers.

Teaching method

There will be plenty of demonstrations as well as chances to experiment and develop the necessary design and technical skills to make colourful, inlaid bowls, plates, vases and tiles
