The Surface Show: 2 Day Surface Intensive Hands-On Workshop with Meredith Host & Chandra DeBuse

This 2 day workshop explores surface
decorating processes at the leatherhard stage. Students learn how to
build layers of visual and tactile information intergrating pattern,
color, texture and image. Pre-bisque we experiment with underglaze
surface design techniques. We will explore screenprinting with
thermo-fax and EZ screens, paper stenciling, freehand drawing with
inlay/mishima, sgraffito, brushwork, stamping, texture, and tissue
transfers. We will combine surface techniques through the use of wax
resist and commerical underglaze. Expand your visual vocabulary and
learn how to create dynamic , complex surfaces. Although we will use
cone 6 porcelain fired in oxidaion, these methods, techniques and
information are applicable to all types of clays and firings.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, but some experience with clay will be helpful.
the hands on portion, everyone needs to bring leatherhard pieces/tiles
(4-6 pieces – recommended tile size is 6″ x 6″). Any type of piece will
work, but a flat surface such as a tile or a plate can be easier/less
frustrating to work with at first. White clay bodies are recommended.
