On this course we will be exploring the different techniques of slip decoration such as sgraffito and inlay.
First you will make a series of tiles from different clays and then choose coloured slips to create eye catching designs on your tiles using these techniques.
The studio is well equipped with materials, tools and equipment and you should not need to bring any tools or materials with you. We do recommend bringing and using a small notebook to keep a record of your work and ideas. You are welcome to bring your own tools but you will not be able to keep them at Hive.
The ceramics studio has a small reference library which you can consult for inspiration and information about ceramics and ceramic decoration. We encourage students to look at a variety of sources for inspiration and information including magazines and periodicals, as well as online sources such as Pinterest and YouTube.
You will be expected to follow Health and Safety guidance whenever you use Hive’s ceramics studio.
