Surface treatments have been used for centuries by skilled artisans to embellish plates, vases, and other objects to add splendor and elegance to their surroundings. Inspired by historic examples, students will learn various methods of surface decoration while applying the concepts of color theory and traditional and non-traditional pattern and design. Alfredo offers a variety of classes, each inspired by a different era, religion, and technique, from the traditional styles of majolica decoration to sgrafitto work, bas relief, and decorative glazing techniques for low fire and stoneware decoration. Beginners are welcome. Supply lists will be sent to students upon enrollment.
