Slip/Engobe Workshop with Renate, Saturday, 7 July, 10 am to 4 pm.
We will start by making our own slips. Basic white clay slurry and additives will be supplied. You will only need to purchase clay stains. Renate will have all basic colours available. Share some colours with a friend. If you have your own stains, please bring them along.
Next we will use our tiles. With paintbrushes and slip trailers, stamps or stencils we will experiment and test a wide variety of application techniques.
Renate will give assistance and demonstrations as required, painting, slip trailing, scraffito, latex/wax resist, printing or stencil resist.
With the experience from working on your tiles you will chose and develop your own designs that suit your pots, taste and skills and abilities
People who would like to learn about engobes but don't wish, at this stage, to make their own are very welcome to participate. There will be no extra expense.
Some paint brushes and slip trailer will be provided.
