Clay Surface Design Workshop

November 13, 2016 @ 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Murray Hill Art Center
4327 Kerle St
Jacksonville, FL 32205

In this exciting, hands-on workshop students will experiment with color and decoration while learning techniques for layering the ceramic surface. Screen printing, stamping, carving, sprigs, and underglaze application will all be explored. Students will have time to try the techniques on leather hard clay tiles in the morning before beginning an individual tile triptych in the afternoon. Some experience with clay is helpful, but not necessary.
