26 Pattern and Colour using Vitreous Slips
Carolyn Genders - www.carolyngenders.co.uk
June 24th - 30th, 2012

Handbuilding. For all

 

On this workshop we will explore the use of colour, texture and pattern to create exciting ceramic surfaces.
Encouraged by Carolyn, students will develop design ideas, drawing inspiration from the Tuscan landscape, particularly beautiful in the autumn when the colours are rich and vibrant.
Students will make press moulded dishes and tiles to use as  three dimensional canvases on which to try out a variety of techniques and different ways to apply coloured vitreous slips.
Vitreous slip is a versatile medium with which to explore colour on ceramics. It offers endless possibilities for pattern and textural variation. Half way between a slip and a glaze, vitreous slip needs only a single firing to produce a matt or semi matt surface.
Throughout the course Carolyn will demonstrate all the techniques covered. There will be plenty of time for discussion and students work at their own pace. There will be a firing half way through so that the results of tests for colour, pattern and texture can be considered before the completion of final pieces.
This is a course for those who wish to develop more advanced surface application skills and techniques. It is particularly relevant for those who wish to explore a great alterative to glazed surfaces.

Cost € 860  It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings
