These themes will be explored through lecture, demonstration, discussion and hands-on experience. Techniques that will be taught in the workshop include: stencil and tape resist, pit-firing, post-fire decoration such as painting, and the use of repair techniques as decorative motif. There will also be a gilding demonstration. You will be introduced to computer cut stencil technology.
