Slip Transfers on Clay
On May 12th and 13th, join VisArts in welcoming seven guest artists from the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Each artist is a studio coordinator at Penland who will be taking over our studios and offering unique weekend workshops that bring new techniques and ideas to VisArts.
Make your own slip transfer “decals” for greenware. We’ll make some screen-printed imagery, hand-cut stencils and some monoprint-like imagery for transfer onto fresh clay. You’ll also have the opportunity to create a vessel or tile from decorated slabs.
- Students should bring their favorite clay tools if they have them (wire tool, sponge, plastic rib, wooden modeling tools, brushes, sgraffito tools, etc.), but we will have some studio tools available for use. Students should also plan to bring black and white photocopies of a drawing or pattern from which they’ll create their screens for printing.
