July 16 - 19 // 4 Day Workshop

9am - 5pm

$500

China paint is a versatile material that can be used to produce a wide range of imagery, pattern, or surface effects. Anything that can be done with paint or ink can be replicated on the surface of a glazed form using this medium. Students in this workshop will explore the use of china paint to add color and design to ceramic work. The use of brushes, how to mix and apply the paints, an overview of pen-work and how to fire the work will all be covered. Participants will paint on their own previously glazed and fired work and/or on commercial china or tiles. We will fire work daily and students will leave with a number finished pieces.
