The first 2 weeks will concentrate on making vessels and decorations for greenware. Weeks 3 and 4 will concentrate on decoration techniques on bisque ware and glazing and washing techniques to enhance the surface decoration. Option for students to use other building techniques such as coil or wheel (if available). Pieces will be soda fired in instructor’s kiln if firing at Callanwolde is unavailable. A selection of underglazes and slips can be available to students as necessary.
