Who is this class suitable for?
Designed for potters looking to develop their work this class will provide support for learners with some experience of making ceramic work.
What will be covered in the class?
This surface design course will allow experimentation and making in block printing, slip decorating and screen printing. Students are welcome to bring bisque or green ware to class to develop with Alondene or develop forms in class.
Screen printing tools and materials including glaze, underglaze, oxides and emulsion will be included. Enamels and slips, glazes and additional clay will also be included. Tools and materials are included but students are encouraged to bring bisque or green ware to class (Alondene will brief students in the first class on what to bring and when). A sketchbook and pencil are essential for design work and technical notes. Aprons or coveralls should be worn at all times, along with hair ties and close-toed shoes.
Alondene Philips originally studied a BA (Hons) in Printed Textile Design. During her BA she had the opportunity to study ceramics and discovered a lifelong passion. She has continued to study ceramics over the past 8 years and in 2017 returned to study an MA in Fine Art with a focus on Ceramics and Surface Design. Her practice focusses on using the print making and surface design techniques to explore different techniques and push boundaries. As a tutor Alondene aims to open up possibilities for her students and enable them to develop new skills and techniques that will inform and enhance their practice.
