Some Experience Required

For this workshop, Amy Irish will break down a seemingly complex process of layered slips, underglazes, and glazes to create one of a kind works.

Sharing recipes, tools, and tricks, Amy will go through her process starting with leather hard clay and finishing with glazing; achieving dynamic surfaces with visual depth and texture. While her work is primarily illustrative, the process in which she layers materials has infinite surface possibilities.


Some experience required:

This workshop is appropriate for anyone with basic clay knowledge; wheel-throwers, hand-builders and sculptors (although we will focus on functional wares) welcome.


All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
