About the workshop:
This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to the chemistry of mixing and techniques for applying very thick slip to transform the surface of their pots. Using the wheel, brushes, hands, and a variety of tools and ribs (some of our own making) the class will explore together how slip can elevate and change the the surface of ceramic forms.
