This is a Two Session Workshop:
November 21 and 28 (Saturdays)
9 am – 3pm, includes break. Please bring a brown bag lunch. Cost is $160 and includes all materials. Space is limited so please sign-up early to avoid disappointment.
Requirements: participants must be 18+ and have some hand building experience.
Instructor: Walford Campbell is a master potter whose work has been exhibited internationally from Germany to Japan to Jamaica. He has taught ceramics and glaze theory at Edna Manley College in Jamaica, University of Texas in Rio Grande Valley, the Ceramic League of Miami and more recently at the Vero Beach Museum.
The Majolica Process: Majolica is an ancient type of pottery dating back to the mid-15th century in which earthenware clay is covered with an opaque white glaze then brush-painted with lively stains or glazes and low fired. The painterly gesture in glaze brings a delightful life to the white background.
Workshop: During the first session of this two-part workshop, participants will learn about the history of majolica and view some of Walford Campbell’s own work. With Walford’s guidance participants will have a chance to make hand-built objects to be bisque-fired mid-week. Test tiles will be painted with glazes for planning and building experience.
During the second session, Walford will lead students in practicing decorative techniques and then providing support and feedback while students apply decoration to the bisque fired work.
Covid safety protocols are in place for this workshop. Please wear a well-fitting mask at all times, while in the studio. Please bring tools you have, the studio can also supply a small variety.
