Ceramics: Press-Moulding and Slip Decorating

4 - 18 October 2018


Thursday 4, 11 & 18 October, 10.30am – 4.30pm

Over this three-day intensive course, participants will focus on the process of press-moulding, using Camden Arts Centre’s range of moulds to produce functional objects such as bowls, plates and dishes. Demonstrations will be given in a range of decorating techniques using slips, glazes and stencils.

Practical projects will focus on:
• Slab-building
• Decorative sgraffito
The course will incorporate a visit to the exhibition, Landline by Amy Sillman, which may inspire simple slip-decorations to complete the works created. Final works will be fired in our on-site kilns.

Additional information:
• Suitable for those with some previous ceramics experience and an interest in developing their practice and technical skills.
• All materials and firing costs are included.
• This course is three full days, over three consecutive weeks.
• There will be a break for lunch between 1.00pm and 2.00pm. Lunch is not provided.
