This is a hands on, participatory S.P. Morgan Studio clay workshop that will give attendees direct experience with slip trailed decoration for application on clay sculpture, functional pottery, and clay tiles. The course will cover all aspects of slip trailing surface decoration, including safely making your own slip, adding colorants, application tools, various techniques, drying, firing, and glazing. All materials will be provided; all you need to bring is yourself. Participants will be provided clay slabs for practicing the techniques, buckets, and equipment for preparing the slip, a basic colorant, a variety of slip applicators to try, complete packet of reference materials, recipes, and instructions to take home. The slip prepared by the attendee is theirs to keep, along with the applicators. We will not actually make finished work in the session, but you’ll go home with specialized tools and a lot of new skills for your creative clay arsenal. If you’d like to keep your practice slabs, you can even take those as well. To register, please visit Hope to see you there! Stacy Morgan S.P. Morgan Studio
