Linda Styles - Substance & Surface
Lustre and on glaze decorative techniques
Date and time: Tuesday 27 September 2016, 11am - 3pm
Maximum number of students: 8
Cost: £80 per person to include all materials
An in-depth opportunity to explore various aspects of Linda's decorative process, following on from the 2 day workshop exploring intuitive free form, slip and glaze decoration, this standalone workshop involves the overlaying of precious metals on glaze colours and iridescent lustres onto already bisque and glaze fired terracotta tiles. For Linda, this final firing has become a firm fixture in her working practice, adding luminosity and depth to an already complex surface, Linda's motto being 'maximal' as opposed to 'minimal'.
