Adults and 14+  $230

In this class we will go beyond basic glazing and learn several techniques for decorating pots. We will learn how to make our own colored slips and combine them with hand building techniques to make vibrant one-of-a-kind pieces. We will learn sgraffito which is applying colored slip and then carving through it. We will learn Mishima which is carving into the clay and then filling in the lines with underglaze. We will have fun with underglaze decals to really up our decorating game. We will even use shaving cream to apply glaze! Pieces will be covered with clear or celadon glazes. Though we will learn the techniques using hand built pieces, these techniques can also be applied to wheel-thrown work. Proof of Vaccination Required.
