Clay - Surface Techniques in Clay

$177

with Kara Bledsoe

Calendar Feb 28, 2024 at 10:30 am, runs for 8 weeks

7th - Adult

This technical class is all about experimenting with different surface techniques to use on clay and pottery. We will use the extruder and slab roller to create practice pieces to explore techniques such as scraffito, positive and negative stencils, carved and imprinted texture, wax and tape resist, and many more. We will also cover how to do shrinkage and absorption test and kiln basics. To finish up this class each participant is encouraged to apply the knowledge gained from the various practice exercises in a final decorative or functional work of their choice. Even though this is class based on technique, no prior clay experience is required.

10:30 am - 12:30 pm - Wednesdays, February 28, March 6, 13, 20, April 3, 10, 17, May 1. No class March 27 or April 24.
