On this workshop you will be taught a variety of decorative techniques such as brushwork, slip trailing, faceting, hakeme, sgraffito, and imprinting. You will also be introduced to hand-building techniques such as pinching, coiling and slab building, which we will then apply to our decorative techniques.
