A two day hands-on workshop on underglaze decoration. Whether you are a hand builder, a wheel thrower or somewhere in between, this workshop will show you how to enhance your work with a painterly surface treatment that mimics watercolor. Julia will show you how to use Velvet Underglazes, underglaze pencils and chalks to create multi layered imagery. First you will practice on a bisque tile then work on one of your own bisqued pieces. 

Upcoming Workshop

If you are in Gilroy area, I teach three levels of Ceramics 7A, B, C. It's a dynamic class for people looking for an artistic outlet. The beginning studio course is designed to introduce the students to the hand-building techniques and artistic potentials of clay as a medium. 

Ceramic 7B course is intended for students to advance their skills and learn how to throw basic forms on the potter's wheel. 

Ceramic 7C requires a high level of skills and artistic thinking to develop a contemporary, personal statement in the ceramic medium.
