Students will level up the appearance of their pottery through different surface and alteration techniques. Both wheel and hand-building projects will be created to fully explore the endless options of decoration with slip, transfers, decals, and texture. Novice and intermediate students are welcome. Techniques students will learn include: Slip trailing and underglaze transfers, glazing techniques (bubble, marbling, pouring & splatter), overglaze decals, sgrafitto, & water etching.

Its time to bring that favorite comfy sweater back into rotation and embrace the changing of the season, in our autumn centric hand-building sessions, students will engage in a multitude of themed workshops that will take the best parts of the season and incorporate them into the world of ceramics.
