Course Description

Pottery – Surface Decoration Workshop

Donahies Community School

 8 hour workshop running over 2 Saturdays: Sat 17th Sept. 11.00am-5.00pm & Sat. 1st Oct. 1.00-3.00pm

Sat 17th September 11-5 (Mono-printing, Textures & Decals) & Sat 1st Oct 1-3pm (Glazing).

Our surface decoration day-workshop will cover three different types of surface decoration.  This workshop is open to beginners as well as those who have worked with clay previously.  Each participant will make at least three different pieces, which will then be dried and fired in the kiln. Two weeks later, participants will return to the classroom and apply a final layer of glaze to seal their pieces before they enter the final kiln firing.

The workshop will cover:-

(1) Monoprinting – the transfer of your own painted images onto the surface of clay. (2)  Decals – applying underglaze printed imagery to forms hand built by students

(3)  Surface Texture – creating foam textured rollers to create an embossed pattern on the surface of the clay.

Work will need to be collected the following week/collection date could be Saturday morning/weekday evening.

All materials, firing & glazing included in course fee.

Students will need to bring lunch for Sat 17th

Course fee including materials €95*
