The Art of Lettering on Clay
Decorating and writing on ceramics is a special way to personalize pottery. This class is a unique opportunity to learn how to add lettering to your bisc work. Jessica will teach you techniques for spacing, form, and shape. Practice on newsprint with pigment will begin to give you the feel for moving your brush through the desired strokes. Jessica will discuss materials and brushes and guide you through a finished project on a provided small plate. The class fee includes small pieces to work on plus one visit to clay Open Studio in order to finish glazing two weeks after this class. There will be an additional cost for brushes. Please call or check the website for more information.
