POTTERY IMAGE TRANSFERS
Experience combining form and surface as you explore the techniques Forrest has developed which allow him to integrate wheel throwing and image transfer techniques creating uniquely decorative functional wares. Use Silkscreens Forrest provides and start by making tiles and progressing to wheel thrown and hand built forms. Forrest will walk you through his process encouraging your own creative exploration through conversations that elicit a deeper development of your personal voice. Whew, that’s a lot! You are certain to leave with a new approach to surface and decoration.
POTTERY IMAGE TRANSFERS
FINDING YOUR VOICE VIA VOLUMETRIC IMAGE TRANSFER
In this workshop, participants will learn how to create uniquely decorative functional wares, using techniques, developed by Lesch-Middelton, that range from wheel throwing to image transfers. Starting with tiles, students will explore new ways to integrate form and surface as they progress to wheel throwing, hand building, and designing original silkscreens. Over a 5-day period, the artist will walk the class through his process, while encouraging individual development of each student’s personal voice. Participants will leave with bisque ware and a silkscreen for further studio practice, as well as exciting new ideas about decorating surfaces. Space is limited to 10 students.
