Pottery is the canvas in this inspiring workshop led by renowned LA artist Wayne Perry. Wayne will show us a variety of techniques to create layered, painterly illustrations to elevate our pots from vessels to works of art. Sgraffito, painting, printmaking techniques will be explored, among others. We will begin the workshop with a talk from Wayne and a survey of his lively body of work.
Some clay experience is needed for this workshop, but all skill levels, including beginners, are welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a couple pieces of bone dry or very stiff leather hard greenware to work on. If you do not have the ability to bring your own pottery, email firstname.lastname@example.org after enrolling and we can make pieces for you to use.
