Learn how to use coloured slips, oxides and under glaze colours with confidence. Improve your knowledge and application of techniques to get the effect you want.
Best suited to potters who already have some experience and want to learn more about surface decoration. You will be shown:
- various slip application techniques, including scraffito, wax resist, inlay, incised, stencil etc
- how oxides and underglazes can be applied and work with other mediums
- how to combine surface decoration to their best effect.
You will be given the opportunity to make some tiles with these techniques and at least one completed hand built piece.
The longer Wednesday class will allow for at least two hand built pieces to be completed. The shorter Thursday course will concentrate on slip decoration, oxides and stains, missing out the sixth session on glaze technology.
