Surface effect details

In this workshop I will share some of my surface techniques using slips, ceramic chalks, underglazes and monoprint.  I will teach you how to make slip, how to add coloured pigments, how to make your own chalks and how to mono print onto clay.

I will then demonstrate how to create some very exciting surfaces onto clay tiles and a finished vessel.

In this workshop we will be making slip, how to make coloured slips using ceramic pigments, how to use ceramic chalks and create your own. We will discuss underglazes and finally I will then demonstrate to you step by step how to use them all with mono printing onto clay tiles and a vessel.

In the end you will be inspired to explore and  investigate these techniques in your own studio.
