Texture Galore Workshop

Texture Galore Workshop


Saturday, December 5th

Sunday, December 6th


In this Two-day workshop students will focus on creating their own stamps using clay and EZ Kut Mats. I will be demonstrating an array of surface decoration techniques to deliver different textures and layers. 


Decoration Demos include sprigging, slip-trailing, carving, AMACO Silkscreens and ELAN TRANSFERS Underglaze Transfer Sheets. All of these technique can be applied to your current body of work!


I will also introduce Sgraffito (in Italian "to scratch") which is a decorating pottery technique produced by applying layers of underglazes to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layer(s) to create contrasting images, patterns and texture and reveal the clay color underneath.


We will then have HANDS ON time to apply some of the techniques that were discussed.
