VIRTUAL: Creating Layered Surfaces - Experimenting with Color and Pattern

3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET

Instructor:  Naomi Clement

The virtual workshop everyone keeps asking for! Watch as Naomi demonstrates her techniques for creating a rich, layered surface on her pots. This will be a comprehensive overview on how Naomi uses colored underglazes, newspaper transfers, and slip to create her signature surfaces. A recipe for Naomi’s white slip will be included as part of this workshop.

Naomi will demonstrate outlined techniques for approximately 1.75 hours, the remaining time will be for in-depth, live Q&A.  All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the host will communicate these questions to Naomi during her demo.

All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop.  Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside Naomi during the demo.

Participants must pre-register for the workshop to get the Zoom link & tool list. Once you register, the links will be in your confirmation email.
