Agateware: Color, Clay, and Layers
from 250.00

This is a 2 - day workshop (Friday and Saturday)

Participants will be provided with in-depth knowledge of ceramic techniques, specifically agateware, for all levels and make curriculum connections across disciplines for a range of grade levels. The participant will create agateware, nerikomi or neriage in Japanese. This technique creates a marbled effect in clay that allows the maker to use layers of clay to create patterns or designs in blocks that can then be sliced or thrown to make vessels, plates, and many other objects. Ceramic Lesson for Beginner – Advanced.
