This two day demo and hands on workshop with Meredith Host will explore surface decorating processes using simple forms and building layers of visual information. Pre-bisque, we’ll experiment with surface design using underglaze, paper stenciling, transfers, and screen-printing techniques. You’ll expand your visual vocabulary and learn how to create dynamic, complex surfaces. These decorating methods are applicable to all types of clays and firing temperatures.
