During this 6-day workshop participants will learn the ins and outs of working with commercial underglazes- application techniques, firing requirements, overglaze considerations, and more. We'll work with slip trailers, paper stencils, wax resist, needle tools, and knives to create full color patterns, images, and textures on our pieces. Each day will include demonstrations and hands-on practice of at least one decorating technique, as well as discussions on how to design forms that will enhance each decorating technique. You'll leave France with a head full of ideas to work into your pots upon returning home. Basic wheel throwing skills are required, as we will be making pots every day. Hand-builders are also welcome. Plan on producing several vessels every day to decorate! The atmosphere of the French riviera will influence your ideas for decoration for years to come.
