March Visiting Artist, Casey Engel "Surface Play"

Casey Engle

Lines, color, pattern, and resist! This four day playful workshop will be loaded with instructional demos focusing on surface design – line, sgraffito, underglaze decals, wax resist techniques, sanding, and color mixing. In this course, students will work with a rich red clay body that provides a lot of potential with the use of drawing and layering colorful underglaze, slips, and decals. This class is designed for seasoned beginner, intermediate, and advanced students who have prior experience working with clay. Students will make forms independently however they feel the most comfortable either wheel throwing or handbuilding. 

Dates:  March 13, 15, 20, and 22nd.   Artist Talk, March 23 | 4:00-5:00 PM
