Upcoming Ceramics Classes
Instructor: Alissa Mittl
We will begin by constructing practical, dynamic wall tiles ideal for hanging. I like to call them box tiles. Historical and contemporary examples of wall-mounted work will be discussed to help students develop ideas. Once our forms are complete, we will begin to build visually upon the surface, to create a dynamic tapestry of information. Using underglazes and sgraffito carving techniques, students will have ample opportunities to explore and achieve their individual goals.
Students will be provided with clay and a sgraffito tool to take home at the end of the workshop. An interest in drawing is highly encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary!
