Surface Design with Slip for Wheel Throwers

Learn how to create your own mason stain slips and successfully apply to thrown pieces: brushing, slip trailing, mocha ware techniques, sgraffito, stamps and more. We will have time to throw during class, but demos will focus on surface treatment. Intermediate to advanced throwers, please see supply list.
