Decoration Short Course

$575.00

Decoration Short Course

Starting March 3rd 6 – 9 pm

This decoration course is for those who want to learn a little more about choices for decoration other than just underglaze and glaze! It is suitable for people who have done an Introduction to Pottery Short Course, Potters Wheel Short Course or any of our other interlocutory level courses.

We recommend our Design and Decorate Masterclass for the ultimate pottery making and decorating experience, however we also understand that the Masterclass might not be for everyone. The main difference between the two courses is that while the Decoration Short Course teaches similar decorating techniques, the focus is purely on the decoration technique, rather than the whole design and integration process. Many people already have a strong sense of what they want to do and just want the cliff notes so they can get on with that!

Here is what you will learn:

WEEK ONE

  • Using coloured slip
  • Make a plate or vase
  • Cover it with slip
  • Design for sgraffito

WEEK TWO

  • Begin the sgraffito
  • Layering slip and underglazes
  • Washi transfers
  • Slip Trailing

WEEK THREE

  • Carving and Piercing
  • Make a piece to be pierced
  • Make a piece to be carved
  • Make a piece for wax resist for next week

WEEK FOUR

  • Finish piercing and carving work
  • Using wax resist – to texture dry clay
  • Wax resist – glazing and layering

WEEK FIVE

  • Nerikome and Neriage
  • How to block up coloured clay
  • using those blocks to build with or to decorate
  • Porcelain

Move onto our Advanced Decoration Course to go deeper into these techniques and more!

All materials and firings are included in this course. Please bring your own hand towel.
