About the Course
POTTERY TECHNIQUES - SGRAFFITO & MISHIMA
Irene Coulthard returns to her pottery roots to teach a variety of decorative ceramic techniques complimenting the regular day and evening pottery classes at Forgan Arts Centre. Previously trading as KC Ceramics, Irene taught regular classes on slip casting and painting techniques and for more than 6 years, wrote regular monthly articles for Popular Crafts magazine showing step by step instructions on how to cast, fire and decorate hobby ceramic items.
Allowing time for drying and firing pieces between sessions, this 2 part workshop will show how to transfer designs to green ware (unfired clay) and demonstrate the sgraffito technique to decorate a flat plaque. You will also learn the Japanese Mishima technique of inlaying slip or underglaze into a contrasting clay body, on your small tile or dish.
You will be taught to carve, colour and texture your pieces before their final glazing, learning about the many steps and processes involved in creating pottery.
Suitable for beginners, and those looking to add some decorative techniques to their ceramic skills.
Final pieces can be collected from the Centre a week after the final workshop.
