You will learn:
You will learn the full array (up to my knowledge) about coloured clay and nerikomi techniques, from coloring clay, all the basic patterns, cane making, collage, and make your own ceramic projects. 5 first periods are about techniques, you will be able to create your patterns library for realizing your projects and you will be able to make small tests pieces. In the 3 last periods you will on your final projects using the patterns you made prior, and I will give personalised guidance and techniques to each.
example of individual projects:
beginner student: small dishes, tea cups, thumblers, small bowls...
intermediate student: mugs, vases, pots with feet...
advanced student: tea set with a teapot and 4 tea bowls, sculpture, large dishes...
(the levels are regarding hand building clay techniques, I expect that all are beginners in coloured clay designing)
