Surface Decoration techniques (Workshop: June 4th-5th)


Surface decoration in pottery is one of the most satisfying aspects while working with clay as it helps add character to one’s own creation. In this 2 day workshop with Shrestha, participants will get introduced to different surface decoration techniques that she has been using extensively in her ceramic career. This will include Slip trailing, Sgraffito, textures/surface impressions, stamps, brush work and print/transfer technique.

These techniques help create intricate designs, details, contrasting patterns and textures on clay surfaces. The possibilities are endless in this creative endeavor.

Workshop Session date: JUNE 4th and 5th

Colored Slip/engobe will be the medium used on clay for application of these techniques. Students will be provided following supplies for the workshop

1)     Leather hard tiles made of two types of cone 6 ceramic clay bodies (dark and white body). All techniques will be practiced on these tiles.

2)     Colored slips 

3)     Tools necessary for creating textures and patterns

4)     Cone 6 ceramic clay to make stamps

Cost includes all materials, plus your work will be fired in the studio and can be picked up after 3 weeks

Instructor Brief:

Shreshtha comes from a diverse background of art, ceramics and science. Juggling a corporate day job in the Science field and Ceramics as a passion for a decade, Shreshtha believes the two polar opposite interests sustain each other in more ways than one.

Currently as a studio artist and enjoys exploring and experimenting with ceramics. Having started her journey with Clay at Claystation, she has had a very fulfilling association with the craft and hopes to share this experience with others while continuing to explore the rich avenues this medium has to offer.
