Painting with Slip Workshop with Claire Watson
Tue June 8 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Explore a reverse printing method using coloured slip & resists.
The process encapsulates both printmaking and ceramics, with a painterly approach to ceramic surface decoration.
You will learn how to create an image in reverse, thinking front to back, along with layering and resist techniques and finally a simple molding method to create clean simple lines allowing the surface to shine.
Suitable for novice and advanced.
This event will take place in the marquee on the village green.
Tickets go on sale to the general public through the website at 10am on Friday 9th April and to Benefactors of the festival 1 week earlier at 10am on Good Friday.
About Clare Watson:
Claire chooses to explore varied mediums believing each project or brief dictates its own unique process, materials and approach.
“A sense of self discovery blooms in the learning of a new process and total immersion of self into the space, the character, the history and the research process”. Claire believes the work engages in a narrative and so its own unique journey.
At least 5 medium to large brushes for slip, a rubber kidney, small sponge, news paper, scissors and craft knife or other small cutting tool, ruler and apron.
Claire will bring: plaster slabs, coloured slip, casting slip, water containers and boards for drying work.
