Event Description: In this two session class, students will learn how to make their own stencils and screens and use underglaze to create colorful layered designs on clay. In the first session, we will discuss basic surface design concepts and learn how to cut custom paper stencils and use sgraffito (carving through slip/underglaze) to add dimension to our designs. In the second session, we will learn how to expose screens using personalized images and use underglaze to screen print on bisqueware.
