Let’s make ceramic wall hangings &/or chunky beads for necklaces!  In this one day workshop we will make many different hanging clay shapes, including beads, to then construct a wall hanging OR for putting together a chunky ceramic necklace.  You can make quite a few simple, geometric ornamentations that will be appropriate for a lovely wall hanging or to adorn yourself!  The techniques we will use can be interchanged between the 2 projects to make a hanging or a necklace; your choice!  We will explore working with underglazes, sgraffito (to scratch or incise into the underglaze & make decoration/line work/designs/pattern/texture, etc…), painting with cobalt, copper, & iron oxides.  You will learn about the workings & basics of clay, stages, resources, definitions & terminology.  We will discuss different ways to hang your pieces or make them into a necklace after they are returned to you.  Your pieces will be fired by Jenifer & glazed with a shiny clear gloss & then returned to Handcraft Studio School within 4 weeks of class ending for you to hang however you wish.  No former clay experience is needed, but if you have some or a lot, fantastic!  Come with some ideas if you like (pinterest is a great inspiration source); however, there will be time to sketch out ideas in class as well.
