Decorating and Glazing Course

This is a decorating and glazing course that will concentrate on these finishing techniques. An extensive range of  of sprig moulds will be used to enhance the decorating of pots. Sprigs are detailed decorative pieces of clay made using a small plaster press mould. They are added to a ceramic work at the leather hard stage.

This course will not teach you to make pots per se but it concentrates on finishing the forms. Participants will either hand build or throw a vessel on the wheel.

There will be a total of 4 classes over 4 weeks. Each class will be two hours.
