This event is organized by:
Tanya Everard – Complex patterns, computers, and surface decoration.
Hi, my name is Tanya Everard, and in this workshop, you will learn how to use images of complex patterns, crop them to fit the outside of your forms (for example, your cups or vases), and transfer the patterns manually onto the form, and decorate them using hand painted and slip-trailed underglazes, with special considerations made to pattern scale, clay form, and colour choices. At the end of this workshop, you will know how transfer complex patterns, such as Islamic geometric patterns, onto your own clay forms to create a beautiful and unique form of surface decoration. You will know where you can find these patterns, how to simply manipulate them so that they fit your clay form, and how to transfer them onto your form, all using the tools you likely have already in your house. Surface decorations techniques such as slip-trailing and hand-painting underglazes will also be added to your toolbox so that, you too, can make exquisitely decorated pottery.
