About the Event
Discovering Slip is a 1 Day combined masterclass and workshop format suitable for beginners and intermediate potters interested in increasing their understanding and use of slips.
Gain an insight into the history of slip and explore how it is used by contemporary artists. Get ‘up close’ to artists work featuring different techniques.
Practise different techniques for applying slip, how to use raw and coloured slips, recipes for colour slips. Learn about different slips and how they respond in oxidation and reduction and with different glazes. Capture your own ideas for exploration.
The content features demonstrations of different tools and techniques, combining slips with glazes based on the work of presenter Rosemary Irons, Mt Cooper Pottery.
Participants will try a range of slips and techniques on test tiles that will be glazed and fired.
