3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET
Instructor: Naomi Clement
The virtual workshop you’ve all been waiting for! Watch as Naomi demonstrates her unique techniques for creating a rich, layered surface on her pots. This will be a comprehensive overview on how Naomi uses coloured underglazes, newspaper transfers, and slip to create her signature surfaces. This workshop shows all of the leather-hard stage surface design that Naomi employs. If you take this workshop, you’ll want to take Naomi’s Glazing & Finishing Details workshop which covers all of her post-bisque work. 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 30 days 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.
