Decorative Surface Techniques for Tableware
21 Oct 2018 - 21 Oct 2018
Work with Shannon Garson to learn techniques like shellac resist, sgraffito, slip trailing, terra sigilata and working with found materials.
The workshop will begin with an introduction to beautiful, translucent porcelain. The class will discuss design, pattern, surface texture and imagery in order to create items with each student's own design. The aim is to create a reflection of each student's unique personality with all its complexity in their final design.
This workshop will set up easy techniques students can use on a variety of clays and surfaces and provide participants with the knowledge and confidence to mix their own colours using a variety of ceramic mediums.
The tutor, Shannon Garson, began her career as a painter, completing a Bachelor of Visual Art from Queensland University of Technology in 1993. Her thrown porcelain vessels are decorated with lively drawings, and are collected by regional museums throughout Australia. In 2005 Shannon received a Churchill Fellowship and travelled for 3 months in Europe, studying ceramics of the Medieval and Renaissance periods.
Shannon Garson exhibits throughout Australia and her work is stocked by Craft Victoria in Melbourne, Museum of Brisbane, Narek Galleries, and Beaver Galleries in Canberra.
