Workshop by Lynn Wood
This workshop will be about enhancing one’s hand-built work by combining a number of surface techniques using textures, colored slips, and underglazes. The techniques that will be covered include slip trailing, using commercial and DIY stencils, DIY underglaze transfers, mono printing, underglaze inlay and more. Each technique will be demonstrated by Lynn and practiced by the participants. We will then explore the possibilities of combining these techniques. Discussion of design principles will naturally be a part of this workshop. Come join in and add some color techniques into your surface toolbox.
