Instructor: Christina Bendo

Location: Sycamore Bdg, RM 7221 Tuition: 161.00

Throughout all of history, people haven’t just been making pots, they’ve been making pots with sophisticated designs, patterns, and textures!  Using examples from prehistoric pottery to modern day, we will make pots and learn different ways to make them uniquely our own with surface design.  We will cover sgraffito, inlay, painted and stencil resists, and ways to create texture with natural objects, handmade stamps and rollers.  Basic knowledge of throwing or hand building is necessary for this class, as the primary focus for demonstrations will be surface decoration, rather than forming techniques. Cost includes one bag of clay, use of classroom glazes and kiln firing.  Tools are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if preferred.
