Each week of this class covers a different surface decoration technique applied on bisque ware. The benefit to decorating on bisque ware is that mistakes can easily be washed away and there is no rush to complete the piece before it dries out! Following demonstrations, students have work time to utilize the methods covered during each class, and every demonstration includes a short slide show of contemporary artists who use the method. Students should bring bisqued work to decorate each week, and are usually able to decorate 2 or more objects each class. Students can fire greenware between classes, but should have bisque pieces prepared for the first class.
