Through presentation and demonstration, you will explore decorating using brush on glazes to pre-bisqued ceramic wares. You will cover all steps of the creative process, beginning with initial 2D design work before translating these onto china blanks. Using various colours and application techniques, you will consider the use of colour, be encouraged to think about form and decoration and learn how to interpret your own surface design ideas in 3D.
You will take away a number of fired decorated wares*, incorporating your chosen design work. You will have improved confidence in design and application and learn how to refine and develop your hand-painting skills. You will have a greater knowledge of techniques used in decorating ceramics.

This course is suitable for all. A fun and enjoyable experience designed to further existing ceramic skills, develop new techniques, or experiment for the very first time.
