The Beauty of Underglazes

The Beauty of Underglazes is a two day workshop (Sat/Sun TBD, October 2021, 10am-4pm) with Julia Feld. (Rescheduled until 2021 due to COVID-19.)This is a fabulous hands-on experience for all levels of potters. Whether you hand build or throw on the wheel, you will learn how to enchase your work with Amaco Velvet Underglazes to create a painterly image that mimics watercolor. After practicing on a green ware and bisque tile to see how the underglazes respond to the raw and fired clay, you will then create a design on a bisque piece you bring. Don’t miss out on this exciting workshop. Details will be forthcoming as it approaches.
