Tired of one-dimensional pots and the same old glazes? Liven up your ware with slip! This workshop will teach a variety of traditional surface decoration techniques utilizing colored slips. We will cover slip trailing (shown in photo), slips with newspaper resist, and how to brush and dip slips. You will also learn how to make your own colored slips. This workshop will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and ample time for practice.
Please bring three to four trimmed, leather-hard pots (thrown or hand-built) to the workshop. Pots must be leather hard, NOT bone-dry. Please spray your pots the day before the workshop to ensure that they are not too dry. Registration fee will include a slip trailer for each student. Please bring brushes, scissors, and basic clay tools to the workshop. The studio also has brushes and tools you may use.
