Join Ann Thompson and me for a fun filled Spring Break Workshop Series at Firehouse Arts in Yarmouth Maine April 15th - 18th.
Ann will be teaching various metal techniques and here's what I'll be covering in my classes:
Tuesday: Animal Ornaments usding Slabs and Texture - Using fun foam to create templates and stamps and everyday objects to add texture participants will create their own Animal Ornaments. Students are encouraged to bring drawings of the animals they would like to make to class. (NOTE-- students participating in this activity will also have to come on Thursday to glaze their work)
Wenesday: Learn how to use a slab roller and explore surface decoration using colored slips to create beautiful soft slab plates. Each participant will make 3 to 4 dessert size plates using a paper plate “mold” .They then will learn about surface decoration by using colored slips to paint designs on their plates and ceramic loop tools for carving.
Thursday: Glaze Day - Participants from Monday & Tuesday's class will return to glaze their bisqued creations.
The plates will then be fired off site and sealed with a clear glaze. This makes the plates food and dishwasher safe……perfect for your favorite snack or to use as a pet dish.
