In this fun three-hour workshop, you will learn how to make brushes for decorating pottery. Brushes can be used to apply slips, underglazes, glazes, oxide washes and wax resist. We’ll be working with several types of animal hair for the brush heads and bamboo for the handles. We’ll also review how you can make your own brush handles from clay. You’ll leave the workshop with several brushes you made yourself to add to your decorating tool kit along with the skills to continue making your own. No experience necessary.
Instructor Paul Wisotzky learned to make brushes from the late Kent McLaughlin of Fork Mountain Pottery in Bakersville, North Carolina. Kent was one of many artists who generously shared their skills with the Ceramics Program community during our Fall 2020 online programming.
All materials are included in the cost of registration and participants can plan on making 3-5 handmade brushes during the workshop!
