Portrait of Janine

In this 6 week class we will learn how to sculpt from basic principles, and assistance will be given to more advanced sculptors to enhance their skills. We will also explore a variety of surface decoration techniques such as carving and painting on tiles and/or hand-built greenware objects, as well as on bisqued pieces. Drafting, design placement, colour mixing and various brushwork techniques will also be touched on. You can work from any design reference you like such as wallpaper, photographs, fabrics, or your imagination. Reference pieces will also be provided. Class fees include all clay and glazes used as well as a underglaze kit for the student to keep.

It runs every Monday, starting January 9 – February 13, 2023, from 11:00 – 1:30 pm.  This class is $402.35 HST included) per person and includes all materials and firing.
