Come make coiled vessels with Lea! Coiling is one of the most versatile building techniques in clay and we will be using it to our advantage. Whether you want to make a vase, a cookie jar or an open sculptural form, you will be guided in coil building to fashion your wildest vessel dreams. Come prepared with an idea in your head, or come ready for, and open to, whatever the clay may reveal.
TRANSFERRING IMAGES ONTO CLAY
with Mary Fretz
Wednesdays, 7-9pm, November 30, December 7, 14
Have you ever wanted to “print” a simple image onto your pot, but didn’t know how? Now’s your chance! In this introduction to image transferring, you will have access to the Photo EZ screen process. Mary will show you how to transfer line images onto slabs, and methods for enhancing your image. You can then use your slab to make a tile, a mug, a vase - whatever you can imagine - and come away with a uniquely personal piece.
