Sep 8, 15, 22, 29, Oct 6, 13, 20 Beginning & Intermediate Wheel Throwing with Emphasis on Decorating Techniques Tues, 6pm–8 pm
Megan Gray Register

An introduction to making functional pottery on the wheel. Students will learn the steps needed to go from centering clay to glazing finished work.

Students will explore basic ceramic forms such as bowls, vases, and plates and many different decorating techniques. Students will be focused on refining and expanding their skills. Decorating techniques will include various decorating techniques and opportunity to add color and decoration before glazing. Using colored slips and engobes there are numerous ways to achieve color, and sprig molds and other additions add more ways to create decoration. Some techniques to be covered include sgraffito, mishima, slip trailing, paper resists, wax resists, and the use of sprig molds. These techniques and many others can be used on their own or in combinations to achieve either simple or complex surfaces all before the first firing. Techniques will often be demonstrated on functional pottery but all of these processes could easily be used to decorate the surface of sculptural work as well!
