Learn the fundamentals of wheelthrowing, refine your existing skills, and evolve your personal approach to working on ceramic surfaces. Tania Rollond will introduce you to a range of techniques for wheelthrowing and embellishing the raw clay surface, covering both traditional forms and highly unconventional ceramic styles. She discusses and demonstrates the use of stamps, stencils, resists (wax, latex, paper, shellac), sgraffito, etching, layered slips and more. You will be encouraged to develop a rich, inventive and personal range of drawn and painted marks while experimenting freely on tiles, then to use your favourite techniques to finish wheel-thrown forms. The course is open to students of all levels in drawing, painting and ceramics. Finished pieces will be bisque-fired for collection after the course.
