This introductory level workshop will explore the ancient glazing technique of Maiolica. Maiolica was perfected in the renaissance, and is the perfect solution for anyone looking to explore drawing and painting on clay, as well as the multitude of possibilities for expressing narrative within ceramics. Throughout the course of the workshop, students will be encouraged to define their own imagery and have a story they wish to express through experimenting with painting and drawing on top of tin-glazed earthenware tiles. Demonstrations and working time will be enriched by slide lectures exploring historical examples and contemporary practitioners of this amazing technique, and their messages and motivations for finding meaning within this historical framework.
